No one ever said movie heroes were perfect. In fact, the most imperfect ones—the deeply flawed, the morally suspect— like in Dog Day Afternoon and Taxi Driver, are often the most fascinating.
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.
