Escape from New York

Escape from New York ★★★★

One of Carpenter's best. Good casting for characters without much depth. I wasn't familiar with Isaac Hayes when I first saw this in the '80s, but after watching Truck Turner, it makes sense. It is hard to recall anybody in the film that I haven't seen in other flicks.

I also love how the film was shot in East St Louis in order to get that grungy NYC look.
