The Warriors (Walter Hill, 1979)

My all time favourite movie. I watched it for the first time aged 10 on a family holiday in Florida. I always remember it was around 2am and there was a huge storm outside. There's the scene where they come out of the subway station and the baseball furies are all standing there swinging bats... from that moment on I was hooked. The music is great in this too.
