From John Carpenter, the original master of the genre film–a torch now carried by Quentin Tarantino. Escape from New York is easily one of Carpenter’s best and most beloved! It’s not surprising that Kurt Russell considers it his favorite film and Plissken his favorite role. Part dystopian sci-fi, part exploitation film, all badassery.
This Italian photobusta features a great shot of the whole gang — Cabbie (Ernest Borgnine), Brain (Harry Dean Stanton), Maggie (Adrienne Barbeau) and Snake (Kurt Russell).
