Junesploitation day #11: Vigilante!
A lurid little piece of exploitation that, striped of its context, takes on an even nastier tone as seemingly alt-right fairytale.
I prefer to look at it as a product of its time; with New York near the brink of collapse and the Guardian Angels seemingly governing the city, how could you make any different movie?
Seemingly built out of two different plots that barely ever connect, Vigilante isn’t Lustigs best, but it might be his most mean spirited.
(Also, kind of love how the prison plot point here is almost an exact mirror of Half Baker’s prison plot point)
