The Warriors

This concerns the 1979 film. Its memory recently popped into my head – seemingly unprompted. I remember really liking it at the time, but haven’t seen it since then and can’t recall it in any detail. My plan is to get it on DVD and discover whether it lives up to expectations.

There’s plenty of 1970s culture around these days but younger generation awareness of The Warriors as a film seems low. There was some familiarity with the movie-inspired video game, although interest was muted due to its association with a gaming system deemed to be inferior.

According to wikipedia, The Warriors received terrible contemporary reviews, although it now appears to have been rehabilitated as something of a cult classic. Here’s the trailer
