There are Valkyries, and then there are Valkyries

Also, this movie [Repo Man] features the most wonderful adaptation I have yet heard of the Ride of the Valkyries in cinema.

When I wrote this, on Independence Day, I had clean forgot the use of the Wagner near the start of Fellini's Otto e mezzo, where (indeed) it is the first music of any sort to be heard in the film.  I suppose I can let the remark stand, and distinguish between its use in the Fellini film, and the creative adaptation in Repo Man.
