dir. Walter Hill, US, 1979, 35mm, 92 min.

A dystopian vision of New York City controlled by gangs with names like The Lizzies, The Rogues and The Baseball Furies sets the stage for one of the strangest cult films of all time. When Coney Island’s Warriors are framed for the murder of the most powerful gang leader in New York, an all-night chase begins to hunt them down. A series of violent confrontations unfolds until the gang finally makes it back to their home turf—where they must survive one more showdown. Hill’s film straddles the line between action/adventure and anachronistic farce. Nevertheless, The Warriors is a highly imaginative and infinitely quotable American film artifact.
