Our newest film block celebrates the best films of the past forty years, with a new entry every night at 8PM. This week, travel back to when bellbottom jeans were the height of fashion and men were judged by the length and width of their… mustache. That’s right – we’re midway through the 1970′s this week on Sundance Channel.

The late 70′s and early 80′s were not always kind to New York in film – for every MANHATTAN or FAME, we had an ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK or THE WARRIORS. We’re featuring that last film this week, a cult classic that achieved that status because it’s both a real expression of the fear we all felt for where the city was headed… but it’s also kind of hilarious. “Warriors – you guys are the big dudes!”
Tune in for more great films this week too – check out our featured lineup after the jump.
