On Episode 111 of The Film ‘89 Podcast, Skye and regular guest host Bill Scurry don their colours and venture into the violent New York of 1979 to discuss Walter Hill’s cult classic film, The Warriors. Beloved by film critics such as Pauline Kael, the film was controversially pulled from cinema’s by Paramount three weeks into its theatrical run following reported outbreaks of gang violence at theatres. The film wasn’t the financial success that Hill had wanted but in the years that followed, The Warriors attained an ever growing following and a second life on television and home video and is now regarded as not only one of Hill’s best films, but as a beloved example of ‘70s American cinema. Oozing style from every pore and armed with a phenomenal synth-rock score by composer Barry De Vorzon, The Warriors is a film as worthy as any of the Film ‘89 treatment.
