In the near future, a charismatic leader summons the street gangs of New York City in a bid to take it over. When he is killed, The Warriors are falsely blamed and now must fight their way home while every other gang is hunting them down.
Enthusiastic supporters of the idea of a “universal basic income” for all citizens, meanwhile, will look to Finland where a trial is now well under way. In France, Emmanuel Macron will try to tread a delicate line in 2018 as he reforms the labour market, hoping to inject flexibility without increasing insecurity or incensing the unions.
The biggest story of the festival had nothing to do with films. It was about shoes. On Tuesday trade magazine Screen reported that a group of women had been denied access to a screening of Todd Haynes' Carol because their footwear – flat shoes with rhinestones – was unsuitable for the red carpet. Further tales came tumbling forth, social media erupted in indignation and soon enough we were soon dealing with a fully fledgedscandale. The Cannes press office rushed out a garbled statement: “Rules have not changed throughout the years (Tuxedo, formal dress for Gala screenings) and there is no specific mention about the height of the women's heels as well as for men's. Thus, in order to make sure that this rule is respected, the festival's hosts and hostesses were reminded of it.” Well, that cleared that up. Perhaps wisely, press screenings are exempt from any dress code: scruffy journalists are free to ascend the Palais' steps in flip flops and trainers.
Nothing tops the insensitivity and stupendous lack of awareness as Lohan's insensitive post five months ago. 然而，主要榜单上的排名大幅上升不会自动转化为欧洲商学院排名的上升。例如，牛津大学(University of Oxford)萨伊德商学院(SaBusiness School)在MBA榜单上的排名上升1位，在开放招生EMBA课程的排名上升5位，在EMBA榜单上的排名上升12名，首次进入该榜单前十名，但其在欧洲商学院榜单上的排名没有变化，依然是第10名。
Cyrus, the leader of the most powerful gang in New York City, the Gramercy Riffs, calls a midnight summit for all the area gangs, with all asked to send nine unarmed representatives for the conclave. A gang called The Warriors are blamed for killing Cyrus as he gives his speech. They now have to cross the territory of rivals in order to get to their own 'hood. The Warriors slowly cross the dangerous Bronx and Manhattan territories, narrowly escaping police and other gangs every step of the way.Written by
A real NYC gang leader was auditioned for and offered the role of Cyrus which he eagerly accepted. Only days before his scenes were to be filmed in the park he could not be reached for his rehearsals and was never seen or heard from again. It remains unclear what became of him although popular urban lore suggests he had been murdered by another gang for his participation in the film. A last minute casting call resulted in then unknown local actor Roger Hill as the selection to replace him. See more »
In the beginning of the movie, the warriors board a D train leaving Coney Island. When the train leaves the station, in the far shot of Coney Island, they are on a B train. See more »
It's still on and we're goin'. Cyrus sent an emissary this afternoon to make sure. Now, Cyrus don't want anybody packed and he don't want anybody flexing any muscle. So, I gave him my word that the Warriors would uphold the truce.
Now everybody says that Cyrus is the one and only.
I think we better go have a look for ourself.

A plot less but evocative and entertaining vision of the city that never sleeps
Much of what I saw in the Warriors reminded me of S.E. Hinton's once praised novel 'The Outsiders' (adapted for the screen by Francis Coppella a few years after this). However, in terms of how extensive the plotting is, these two stories could not be more different. The Warriors is so thin on story, that feels like a baby step away from a video game. The majority its ninety minute running length is made up of three things, Fighting gangs/cops, running from them, and kissing girls. This would make a very good game actually. I haven't read the book, but as a motion picture, it is surprisingly entertaining, despite some little holes along the road in need of plugging. On top of that, it functions as a fairly convincing portrayal of New York's darker side from thirty years ago.
One night, every gang from every borough of New York (which is about sixty thousand people) goes to the Bronx to hear the words of Cyrus (da boss). In the middle of his speech, someone guns him down and in the chaos, points his finger at nine boys dressed in identical brown leather vests; the Warriors, a gang from Coney Island who spend the rest of the night on the run trying to get back hope.
If I had to guess, I would say John Carpenter's vision for Escape from New York maybe have been influenced in part by this. the Warriors is not a pretty place to be. This motion picture shows the darker more dirty side of New York. There are no Broadway lights, fancy dressers, or bright yellow taxis here. I didn't watch the Warriors on a very big screen but even still, It felt frequently evocative and spooky.
There may be some room for improvement, and there are indeed (among other things) a few shots which could have been framed better. In one, you can see half the film crew standing on the side of the road.
Anyway, The Warriors is worth a watch, because it's neat and if nothing else there are not too many films like this.
