Escape from New York

Escape from New York ★★★

It's John Carpenter films in the 80s starring Kurt Russell double feature night!

For the first hour of Escape from New York, I wanted to escape this movie because it is a ton of setup and slow buildup, but once it passes the first hour, it gets a lot more interesting.

I am a fan of the world itself, where Manhattan is an island that consists of a prison full of criminals where they can roam freely and establish their own inner society. The look of the city brings an unsettling atmosphere, and even the lighting sets the mood and dreariness.

Outside of Kurt Russell's Snake Plissken, who rocks the iconic eyepatch look, I cannot say any of the characters are memorable - cool costumes, though.
