The New York Times - Vincent Canby
The real thing. It's a sneakily rude, truly zany farce that treats its lunatic characters with a solemnity that perfectly matches the way in which they see themselves.
Variety - Unnamed
Repo Man has the type of unerring energy that leaves audiences breathless and entertained.
Austin Chronicle - Unnamed
Cox, who wrote and directed the film, creates a strange but hilarious view of our culture, a brilliant satire on modern society...deserves the same respect and attention given to "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" and "This Is Spinal Tap," two films that define the cult category.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - Jay Scott
A non-stop, shoestring trip with more adventures and a helluva lot more smarts than you'll find in most American movies...All in all, there's more plain fun to be had here in 10 minutes than in a whole hour on the road with that jerk Indiana Jones.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
This is the kind of movie that baffles Hollywood, because it isn't made from any known formula and doesn't follow the rules.

Repo Man (1984)

A down and out young punk gets a job working with a seasoned repo man, but what awaits him in his new career is a series of outlandish adventures revolving around aliens, the CIA, and a most wanted '64 Chevy.
