MORE ABOUT THE SCREENING:
Get ready for the second film in GUNKY’S BASEMENT, the new Maryland Film Fest series curated and hosted by Dan Deacon and Jimmy Joe Roche: Alex Cox’s cult classic REPO MAN!
This irreverent, modern-classic dark comedy is set in the punk wasteland of mid-80s LA, stars Emilio Estevez and Harry Dean Stanton, and boasts a soundtrack that includes Iggy Pop, Circle Jerks, and Black Flag.
Don’t miss this rare 35mm screening of this indescribably unique 1984 film! Again, it’s just $5 for a 35mm print, hosted by musician Dan Deacon and artist Jimmy Joe Roche.
$5 advance tickets will be available at Video Americain Charles Village (3100 St. Paul St.) until Wednesday 12/8, and silkscreened posters created for this screening by Baltimore’s own ROSE CHASE will be available at the door.
Roger Ebert said of REPO MAN, “Repo Man comes out of left field, has no big stars, didn’t cost much, takes chances, dares to be unconventional, is funny, and works. There is a lesson here.” Read his full review, originally published in January of 1984, here:
