Here is a fun film comparison.
Two of my favorite Philip Kaufman films are Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1976) and The Wanderers (1979). On the surface these two films seem so radically different given their distinct genre and stylistic concerns. However, on closer examination they actually have a lot in common.
For example, the following clip from The Wanderers features the final fight scene wherein the various ethnic gangs from da Bronx battle it out with the dreaded Ducky Boys. Take a look at the Ducky Boys in this scene and tell me they don’t look like lifeless aliens from a heroine addicted planet. Moreover, notice the tell-tale words from Joey (the first character you will see and hear in this clip) when he announces the Ducky Boys’ arrival–immediately hearkening back to Kevin McCarthy’s final words in the original 1956 version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, which he then again repeats during his cameo appearance in the 1978 re-make by Kaufman. The circle is complete!
