Turns out a major scene was filmed around the corner from me in Long Island City, Queens.  LIC is now home to dozens of film and TV shoots each year, but this is the earliest thing done here of which I'm aware.  The below site is that of a pro location scout, and has amazing shots of the NYC area.  He has a three-part post on locations for The Warriors.  The second link is of a '20s movie palace restored as a church out in Jamaica, Queens--it may be the most incredible, lavish interior in the city.

Thanks, I really enjoyed that, especially the bit where the Bronx is played by LIC.  Afro

The Warriors: Ultimate Director's Cut (1979/2005?) Blu-ray - 5/10. This was $10 at Best Buy--cheaper than the ticket for the screening of the theatrical cut the other night. So I picked it up. The changes don't amount to much: a prologue, told in comic panels, that makes explicit the parallel between the film and a classical story of Greek soldiers fighting their way home through Persia; and new scene transitions, roto-scoped stills from the original cut made to look like comic panels that sometime includes character thoughts (as in, "Holy Shit!"). Not enough of a change to detract from or improve the film.

The Driver (1976) - 6/10

Not much I'm afraid. The car scenes are indeed great, but everything else is mediocre at best. Dern has too much screen time and too much petty dialogue. Adjani I can't stand here: her character's laughable. O'Neal is good in my opinion, true, the character works for him.

The old wisdom that says - never watch as an adult what you liked as a child - strikes again.

This was the original threatrical cut of the print. I guess the cultists don't much like the director's re-vamped version now available on home video.

I just read DVDBeaver's review of "The Warriors" BD. It's a shame they didn't include the original version without the comic book inserts of the "director's cut". I haven't seen the "director's cut" so can't comment, but I'm less tempted to buy it without the theatrical version in there too.
