Escape from New York

Escape from New York ★★★★½

For most of his career it seemed John Carpenter could do no wrong and Escape is no exception. Is anyone as bad a motherfucker as Snake Plisken is? He is the perfect anti hero. I love pretty much everything about this movie from the iconic poster, to the pulsing score to the great story, all the cast and to the look. One of those few movies you wish could somehow be longer, Escape From New York is a perfect popcorn film.
