New Release: Repo Chick DVD and Blu-ray

Repo Chick, filmmaker Alex Cox’s long-awaited “follow-up” to his 1984 break-through film Repo Man, arrived on DVD and Blu-ray on Feb. 8, 2011, courtesy of CAV.

Despite the title of the 2009 independent film, Cox told the Village Voice in a recent interview that Repo Chick is not a sequel. “It’s entirely a free-standing film about a very wealthy young woman who finds meaning stealing from the middle class and the poor,” he said. “You wouldn’t need to see Repo Man to make sense of it. It’s another comedy about the economic crisis, and how the crisis has intensified so much in this round.”

Okay, so the filmmaker already told us the comedy’s general story, but here’s the official synopses: “A spoiled rich girl Pixxi De La Chasse (Jaclyn Jonet of Cox’s Searchers 2.0) is disinherited by her family for an apathetic attitude and countless bad driving arrests. When her car gets repossessed, Pixxi ends up getting hired by repo men and soon becomes the best repo chick around. On a fateful hunt to track down antique railroad cars, Pixxi becomes entangled in a terrorist plot to blow up downtown Los Angeles. Now it’s up to her to save the city.”

Also starring Miguel Sandoval (TV’s Medium), Rosanna Arquette (Baby It’s You), Chloe Webb (Sid and Nancy), and Xander Berkely (Year One), Repo Chick opened theatrically in New York City at the IFC Center on Jan. 14, 2011, and in Los Angeles at the Downtown Independent on Jan. 21, 2011, before coming to disc.

The DVD and Blu-ray editions were priced at $24.95 and $29.95, respectively.
