Alex Cox’s REPO MAN & George Orwell’s 1984
Alex Cox’s REPO MAN (R, 1984, 92 min)
Harry Dean Stanton stars as a weathered repo man in desolate downtown Los Angeles, and Emilio Estevez as the nihilistic middle-class punk he takes under his wing. The job becomes more than either of them bargained for when they get involved in reclaiming a mysterious—and otherworldly—Chevy Malibu with a hefty reward attached to it. Featuring the ultimate early-eighties L.A. punk soundtrack.
George Orwell’s 1984 (R, 1984, 110 min)
George Orwell's dystopian vision tells the story of one man's struggle under the surveillance of Big Brother. Winston Smith (John Hurt) rewrites the history books for the Ministry of Truth. Disillusioned by the state of affairs, his life takes a horrifying turn when he begins a forbidden love affair and commits the crime of independent thought. Sent to the Ministry of Love, he is placed at the mercy of O'Brien (Richard Burton), an imperious leader determined to not only control his thoughts but crush his soul.
