Escape from New York

Escape from New York ★★★★

Cinematic Time Capsule
1981 Marathon - Film #38

”Hey. You’re Snake Plissken, ain’t ya?”

Top 5 Reasons I ❤️ THIS New York:

#5: Harry Dean Stanton playing a character called The Brain and OWNING it. Why the hell was he never a Batman villain?!?!?

#4: Ernest Borgnine as a cabbie who seems to have no idea what movie he’s in and it’s adorable.

#3: Cars with chandelier headlights. How the hell did this fail to become a thing???

#2: A synth soundtrack that makes even the most boring scenes cool.

#1: A patch-wearing raspy-voiced Kurt Russel with more swagger than a 60’s Jagger

”I swear to God, Snake, I thought you were dead.”
“Yeah. You and everybody else.”
