Escape from New York

Escape from New York

“I don’t give a fuck about your war... or your president.”

Somehow noted as an action classic but it’s actually a post-apocalyptic mood piece about the extending reach of American imperialism. Conceived by a righteous anger after Watergate, the anti-authority streak of Carpenter’s protagonists makes its stunning mainstream debut in one of the ultimate “fuck the man” film experiences. 

“I’m tired.”


As good as The Last Boy Scout
