On the basis of this trailer it would seem that Alex Cox‘s Repo Chick is less a sequel to his well-aged cult fave Repo Man as it is a strange, post-modern collage that simply uses the Repo connection as one more reference point in a tangled constellation. It also seems to be an openly disagreeable work, in many respects, and I certainly can’t see its aesthetic pleasing everybody (read: anybody much). I’d be interested in hearing what side folk fall on after checking it out after the break.
The ‘actual’ sequel to Repo Man was Waldo’s Hawaiian Holiday, published as a graphic novel. You can check out a sample for free through Cox’s official site for the project. It’s not too attractively illustrated, unfortunately.
