Not My President: Political Dissent in ‘Escape from New York’

I recently watched the BBC Quatermass miniseries from 1979 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0078129/?ref_=nv_sr_5 and its interesting to see the influence on Carpenter — especially with regard to Escape from NY. A lot of the ideas and themes you bring up from this Carpenter gem are also present in this BBC series. Dated, but fun to see the influence on one of my fav directors.
