Escape from New York

Escape from New York ★★★★

“You’re Snake Plissken aren’t you. Thought you were dead.”
“I am.”

An immaculate combination of performance, art/production design and economic storytelling. Could watch Russell begrudgingly navigate this dystopia warzone for hours. I know we already have 4 incredible collaborations but god imagine if we got a couple more out of the Carpenter and Russell director-actor pairing? Would have been too powerful.
