Escape from New York

Director: John Carpenter Run Time: 99 min. Format: DCP Release Year: 1981

Starring: Donald Pleasence, Ernest Borgnine, Isaac Hayes, Kurt Russell, Lee Van Cleef

1997 was the year of The Spice Girls, Princess Di’s crash and Dolly the cloned sheep. This 1997 is Kurt Russell’s beautiful hair and an eye patch being flown into criminal Island NYC to save the prez. Which is better? John Carpenter had a better run than basically any other director, and let’s take it outside if you want to disagree.
