Escape from New York (John Carpenter)

Escape from New York

John Carpenter

In the near future, Manhattan Island is turned into a maximum-security prison. A federal prisoner is sent to rescue the President of the United States after Air Force Once crashes on the island. A post-apocalyptic thriller shot in 1981 that has since become a cult movie, and confirmation of John Carpenter’s artistry as filmmaker, narrator and composer of electronic scores.
