Escape from New York निर्देशक John Carpenter
With economy and simplicity, Carpenter creates the indelible, and in Russell he found his best collaborator. Michael Myers remains Carpenter’s most identifiable creation, though it’s The Shape’s utter lack of eccentricity that defines him. Snake is the first of Carpenter’s muscled, masculine heroes, an archetype the filmmaker would manipulate to satirical effect with Russell’s Jack Burton and Roddy Piper’s unnamed blue collar bruiser.

Though John Carpenter amassed several classics to his name by the time he made Escape from New York, the 1981 film feels in many respects like the director’s quintessential work. A genre mash-up of action, suspense, black comedy, and science fiction, the film demonstrates Carpenter’s capacity to juggle multiple styles and tones with his minimal aesthetic. Economy is the director’s trademark, and it’s this film, his first large-scale work, that truly demonstrates it.

Return to the movie now… and Escape from New York works a lot more suggestively than you remember. It feels perfectly positioned between Hollywood’s ’70s-era political cynicism and the dawning age of the blockbuster. (Far down in the credits, “Jim Cameron” is listed as a matte painter.) The movie proudly wears its affection for crusty Sergio Leone archetypes and countdown-clock suspense sequences; Carpenter was Tarantino long before Tarantino was.
