Smokescreen brings to life iconic and influential films from the history of cinema. In 2017, the series will explore the world of cult cinema. At times strange, horrific or hilarious (and at times, all three at once!), cult cinema brings the edges of the human experience into sharp relief.
Repo Man is a dark comedy thriller that delves into the seedy LA underworld. Otto (Emilio Estevez) is a disaffected punk wandering the LA streets before Bud (harry Dean Stanton), a repossession man, offers him money to drive out of a bad neighbourhood. Soon enough, Otto is earning big money under Bud’s tutelage.
Meanwhile a nuclear physicist has put something toxic in the trunk of his Chevy – a nuclear device? An alien? – and Otto and Bud are in for a big surprise as the FBI pursue their latest repo job.
