Walter Hill Amerika Serikat, 1979

Johnny DuBiel's rating of the film The Warriors

At first glance, this is a very well made popcorn flick. However, when one plumbs deeper, they will find rich, epic subtext borrowing from a myriad of mythologies. Hill's Warriors are flawed heroes, which makes them all the more accessible to the audience. I find something new upon which to focus in just about every viewing.
