Watched this one tonight. Repo Man was one of those WTF movies I originally saw back in it's original theatrical release back in '84-ish. I vividly remember seeing it at a drive-in in Orange, CA with a bunch of friends and really connecting with the offbeat humor of the film. We'd quote the dialog back and forth for months afterwords. I've had the old laserdisc and first dvd release but haven't watched them in years.
Overall, I think the transfer is excellent if just a smidgen too pink in some of the fleshtones. The mono 2 channel soundtrack is fairly dynamic for what it is but there's a few scenes where dialog gets buried in the mix. What really makes this release great is the extras, even the thick booklet which is a great read on it's own. I haven't been a huge fan of some of Criterion's graphics for their releases the last couple years and don't care much for the cover of this release, but the booklet perfectly captures the look and feel of the film thanks in large part to illustrators Rob Jones, Jay Shaw and director Alex Cox's comics. The (old) interview with Alex Cox and the aging inventor of the Neutron Bomb as they discuss deleted scenes is pretty bizarre viewing.
