The Warriors

A fashion shoot from Swindle magazine, where the gangs of NYC are women. Clockwise: The Warriors, The Orphans, The Rogues, The Warriors (again), The Baseball Furies.

From the Warriors Movie site:

The Warriors is a brilliant film if you like violence! Everything about this film is cool from the costume to the music. The film starts out where there is a meeting of all gangs in New York City and the leader of the largest gang gets shot. The Warriors get blamed and so every gang in the city is out to get them. The Warriors then have to get back home to Coney Island – alive!

Sorry, but the costumes are NOT cool. The hairstyles are unwatchable, and I wouldn’t buy the soundtrack. But we like the “gangs” premise.  Word on the street is that there’s going to be a  remake.  GGGGRRRRRRRRRR.

    perhaps not for 2004, but nothing as fickle and subjective as fashion and music ever remains cool forever. But for the early ’80’s, it WAS cool, and The Warriors were a blueprint for gangs today. There hasn’t been a gang-centric film created since that reflected gang-life as well…all others have been exploitation pieces….
