Escape from New York

Escape from New York ★★★★★

The brilliant concept, the social satire, the cheesy anti-hero, the choice of actors, the poster (portraying Liberty's head in an NY street - neither featuring nor even possible in the film), the dubious treatment of its female character, campily dressed NY street gangs, the dystopian world.

Escape from New York may not be Carpenter's finest but it's still the ultimate b-movie.
