“[O]ne of those movies that slips through the cracks and gives us all a little weirdo fun …. 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 comes out of left field, has no big stars, didn’t cost much, takes chances, dares to be unconventional, is funny, and works. There is a lesson here.” Roger Ebert
