The cult favorite Repo Man (1984) returns for a single showing. For those of you with absolutely no familiarity with the movie (and there must still be a few), this was the groundbreaking New Wave assault on just about anything that was held sacred or even merely normal in the middle of the Reagan age, all centering around repossessing cars as a kind of metaphor for nihilistic youth. Since it hasn’t been that long ago that I reviewed this one, I’ll simply direct you to the archived online review at http://www.mountainx.com/movies/review/repo_man.
Repo Man will be shown at 8 p.m. Monday, Sept. 7, at Firestorm Cafe and Books, 48 Commerce St., Asheville.
