Directed by John Carpenter | 1981

With Kurt Russell, Lee Van Cleef, Ernest Borgnine

New York City, 1997: the floating cesspool of Manhattan is now a maximum-security prison. When Air Force One crashes on the island, grizzled convict Snake Plissken (Russell) has twenty-four hours to rescue the president—or that explosive implanted in his neck goes off. With its staggering CinemaScope visuals, ultra-tight narrative economy, and rat-a-tat action, this gritty dystopian nightmare is a virtuoso showcase for Carpenter’s stylistic chops.
