Movie of the Day…

repo-man

Punk rocker Otto (Emilio Estevez) doesn’t know what to do with his life after he quits his job at the grocery and his girlfriend dumps him at a party.  That’s when, after drinking a six-pack (brand name: “Beer”) and thinking about life, he is befriended by Bud (Harry Dean Stanton), a repo man, When Otto goes home to ask his parents for money to go back to college, they reveal to him that they donated his college savings to a televangelist.  This is when he decides to pursue a career in repossessing cars for the Helping Hand Acceptance Corporation.  The whole movie revolves around a mysterious 1964 Chevorlet Malibu and the mysterious contents in its trunk, driven around by a UFO conspiracy nut.  Soon everybody at “Helping Hand”, their rivals, criminals, and government agents are all after the Malibu.  This cult classic is great because it has a little bit of everything: comedy, action, mystery, and sci-fi.  Oh, and it also has a pretty awesome surf/punk rock soundtrack.  Check it out.
