Classics & Cocktails: REPO MAN

Viewing: June 07,2024

Watch Trailer Director: Alex Cox
Cast: Emilio Estevez, Harry Dean Stanton

Widely considered one of the best films of 1984 – a year which also saw the release of huge films like Revenge of the Nerds, the original Dune, and The Never Ending Story – REPO MAN is the evergreen, cult classic satire of America’s Reagan Era.

The featured cocktail is the Berry Kamikaze, made with fresh strawberry infused Eleven Square vodka, Naranja Orange liqueur, lime cordial and raspberry liqueur.

The Berry KamikazeOtto Maddox (Emilio Estevez) is a young punk in L.A. who loses his job, his girl, and his desire to put up with his hippie-ish parents. Wandering the streets one night, Otto is approached by Bud (Harry Dean Stanton) and offered a small sum of money to drive a car out of the neighborhood. This leads to Otto getting swept up in a chain of events that involves him begrudgingly becoming a “repo man” and chasing after the $20K bounty on a Chevy Malibu whose trunk may contain something more otherworldly than a spare tire.

With its weird special effects, its cinematic snapshots of the Mojave Desert and mid-1980’s Los Angeles, and a punked-up soundtrack by Iggy Pop (not to mention a cameo appearance from punk legends The Circle Jerks), REPO MAN is a love letter to its era and unlike any other film you’ve seen.
