Escape from New York

Escape from New York ★★★

Things I like about this movie:

-the gritty, cartoonish production design 
-the catchy, cool score
-the ridiculous minimalist plot
-the surprisingly good performances

Alas, I don’t think it quite comes together like some of Carpenter’s better films or other movies of this ilk like The Warriors, which has a surprisingly similar premise and came out a couple years beforehand. 

Also, is this where video game logic comes from?  I had a strange urge to play Fallout while watching this.
