Escape from New York

Escape from New York ★★★★½

This was an excellent watch from the purple patch that made up the first fifteen years of the career of director John Carpenter, one of my personal favourites. He couldn't miss during this period, and his ideas are fresh and his approach is distinctively exciting. Kurt Russell proves an ideal alter ego for Carpenter, and the result is cinematic magic. Here's hoping they'll eventually decide to complete the trilogy! =)
