Fifteen Atomic Truths About Repo Man

Repo Man | Image source

The 1984 cult classic Repo Man is the entertaining tale of Otto (played by Emilio Estevez), a typically angry and cynical punk rock dude with hippie parents in their own little world and a consumeristic, money-driven society that has him and his ilk marginalized. When he decides to become a repo man under the tutelage of Harry Dean Stanton, however, Otto's world is turned upside down. 

Mental Floss' collection of anecdotes about Repo Man includes bits like the following tale of Estevez family bonding: 

"5. OTTO GAVE ESTEVEZ GREATER INSIGHT INTO A FAMILIAL RELATIONSHIP.
I didn't really know anything about the punk movement,” Estevez recalled to American Film in 1985. But he had a general idea because his brother, Ramon, was into the scene. “So I started listening to the music and going to the clubs and I began to understand what the punk movement is all about, and understanding where my brother was coming from at that point. So for me it was an important film on a personal level.”
