Repo-Chick

Where are the cultural reactions to the implosions, especially among the middle-classes, of the past decade?

Alec Cox is making a sequel to his early 1980s LA punk movie Repo Man, called Repo Chick:

Alex Cox’s Repo Man sequel Repo Chick is finally going into production next month (January 2009). Production Weekly reports that David Lynch is producing the project.

The original 1984 film told the story of Otto, a newly hired repossession man who goes in search for a mysterious Malibu carrying a high value package which was taken from a government lab and has strange effects on anyone who views it.

Cox has previously said that the follow-up will “unfold against the background of the credit crunch and the subprime mortgage crisis in the US, where repossessions of homes, cars and other forms of property is at a new high. ‘The repo business has expanded to everything from boats, houses, aeroplanes, small nations…children”

I don’t remember the original being something that would hold up that well. However David Lynch is producing this new one.

    I’m aghast. Of course I’ll hold off judgement until seeing it, but I can’t say I have high hopes.
