Harry Dean Stanton in “Repo Man” (1984) dir. Alex Cox

Veteran character actor Harry Dean Stanton delivered what was perhaps the best performance of his career as the burned-out, but principled automobile repo man Bud in Alex Cox’s nihilistic punk comedy masterpiece “Repo Man.”

Key line: “Ordinary f–king people … I hate ’em.”

Other key line (not in this clip): “What are you, a f–kin’ Commie? Huh? … I don’t want no Commies in my car. No Christians either.”
