Ken Wahl and Karen Allen star in this New York gang film from the director of The Right Stuff and Henry & June. In 1979, not one but two colourful New York gang films were born. One was a period piece, Philip Kaufman's fantastic 60s-set The Wanderers, and the other is now a period piece, the colourful, incendiary The Warriors. Both are rightly considered cult classics. Come along to both, and argue about which gang is harder: the Baseball Furies or the Ducky Boys. Please: no slashing seats. - Edgar Wright
