If there ever was a definitive cult classic, The Warriors is it. A reworking of ancient greek mythology transplanted to the turf war scene of late 70s New York, The Warriors is a highly stylised urban odyssey of a street gang (back when feathered hair and brown leather vest could still impart menace) who after being falsely accused of killing a rival gang leader must battle their way back from The Bronx to their own territory of Coney Island. What follows is a visually iconic representation of New York and a whole host of cool comic book-esque gangs such The Baseball Furies (who dress in facepaint and baseball uniforms complete with baseball bats), The Lizzies (an all female gang from Union Square), The Boppers (a Harlem gang who sport fedoras and purple satin waistcoats) and more. It's initially controversial reputation has given way to retro kitsch affection with comic books and video games being produced in more recent years solidifying The Warriors as one of the truly great and most fun cult films of all time.
