Escape from New York

Escape from New York ★★★★½

i’m more embarrassed to admit i hadn’t seen this until this year than say, seven samurai or before sunrise.

i managed to know very little about it going in- for instance; the supporting cast? lee van cleef, ernest borgnine, donald pleasance, tom atkins, isaac hayes and harry dean stanton?! tight.

is it a perfect movie? nah. but it’s a perfect carpenter movie and that’s more than enough for me.
