This bizarre update of The Odyssey tells the story of the titular posse making its back way home through the territories of rival gangs. 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
