4k movie reviews
In working mode, he revised Carpenter's Escape from New York today, which in childhood seemed not so cool, apparently due to Kurt Russell's lack of commitment. In childhood, the movie as you watch? - that - is cool, and this one is bad. With age, of course, you start to pay attention to some other things - well, at least on the Barbo neckline (by the way, she is the former spouse of Carpenter, so you can write a lot about her sexuality). Even as a child, you don't really appreciate all the little things that are mass in films: for example, in the former library there is an oil pumping tower mounted in the floor - it seems to you that this is normal and nothing to worry about.

I would not really like to go into the film history now, but Carpenter can be called the director of the first wave of post-apocalyptic cinema, and it's interesting that the frame is based on the films of the noir film: the night is sure (not only does the picture lose its appeal in daylight) even the night in the film seems to come every two hours), in which the hero dissolves, the predominance of vertical lines, and of course the eternal motive of the city. With New York in general, Carpenter gets overly ironic, well, or now it looks ridiculous (the film was shot on the 81st): Liberty City is a huge prison, well, and an eternal distortion on the theme of the American flag and of course the Statue of Liberty here too.

In general, with all the simplicity of the design, the director gets a very good story, which is surrounded by a drama similar to the president's tie, tied to strict Windsor. And although it all looks at times naive, but put it all on the screen now, you could have made a great action. By the way, the electric Internet even somewhere wrote about a possible remake of the picture, but it is not very clear who will take it, hopefully not McG, but for example the Hughes brothers. It is clear that in the early 80s the film carried quite specific tasks, and it may therefore look bristling: the cold war, which in the film grew into a "hot" one (for example, the main character, the Serpent, flew over Leningrad) the spirit of dystopia. Yes, and the main character of Carpenter turned out to be a classic for that time - that is, such "the most non-positive of the cutest characters," as the Ironworkers wrote. Well, that is, as a matter of fact, pure postmodern: the hero of the whole film saves the president, or rather some kind of audio recording, which is in a suitcase chained to the hand of the first person of the state. And this record seems to be like everyone should save and reconcile the states with the militant Soviets and Peking (oh, how now this whole story looks funny to communist China). And now, when tears come from the happy end, and the recording seems to be heard to the whole world and save it, the speakers play ... jazz of course!
