Video Village With Ask Chris: Steve Buscemi Vs. Snake Plissken


Steve Buscemi turns 55 today and I hope he is celebrating with a screening of his 1996 classic Escape From L.A. The reptilian actor sports a porkpie hat and a ’59 Cadillac as “Map To The Stars Eddie” in the sci-fi flick where a dictator and an earthquake come together in the futuristic year of 2013 to make Los Angeles a Godless prison island. Check out this chase between his pink Cadillac and Peter Fonda and Kurt Russell on surfboards… with a Dick Dale soundtrack! This should be the permanent midnight movie next year at the Nuart. How much would you pay for a line of Snake Plisskens slithering down Santa Monica Boulevard?
