Escape from New York

Escape from New York ★★★½

Being a badass means not having to decide between a disco ball or chandeliers to spruce up your ride. This beat was sick.

Also, I don't understand why Bandstand Boogie can't simply foster world peace.

Escape from New York is drenched in the sweat, blood, and tears of early 1980s punk bitterness. It plays like an edgier The Warriors.

It takes a dark mind to dare to cordon the financial heartbeat of America and transform it into a maximum security penitentiary. What a message.

This is John Carpenter's response to Watergate and a big fuck you to the US government. Can he please come out of retirement?
