Tonight, 2013, the Tweakers turn their eye on the 1981 prequel to Escape from L.A., (JOHN CARPENTER’S) ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, to argue over the nature of originality, habituation, and pragmatism — but mostly just waste the hours playing a game where a Tweaker tries to guess a movie that has starred an unnamed actor. Escape From New York was filmed on locations far from New York City; it stars Lee Van Cleef and Donald Sütherland. Introducing Harry Dean Stanton. And Isaac Hayes. With Adrienne Barbeau.
To ensure your film is synched with this Tweak, please do the following:
- 1. Load your media into the player and play the film until you see the title ‘ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK’ appear under John Carpenter’s name.
- 2. Hit pause on ‘ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK’.
- 3. Start the Tweak and wait for us to say, ‘3..2..1..PLAY.’ When we say ‘play’, hit ‘play’ to continue the film; our movie and yours should be playing in synch.
You will have ample time to get in position during the several minutes of opening banter of the Tweak. If you are not set up by the time we are ready to start, simply pause the Tweak and get it together.
