Escape from L.A. Geregisseerd door John Carpenter


The secret is that the wild inconsistency of Escape from L.A. is actually an asset, papering over the sometimes spotty pacing of the original with a gleeful morass of inconsistently deployed genre tropes, celebrity cameos, and set pieces so self-contained the film starts to resemble vaudeville more than the “thriller” model it briefly flirts with.

Trom the neat green-against-black design of the credits to Snake’s terse one-liner at the end (the only one-liner in the movie that really works), Carpenter’s visual and conceptual minimalism has rarely functioned as cleanly as it does in Escape From L.A. This is a minimalism that can paradoxically accommodate a ’Scope format and most of Los Angeles and environs (including Disneyland, reconfigured in postapocalyptic terms) as it decorously fills the frame.
