My younger sister frequently sends me all kinds of stuff she finds online, including numerous “Best of” lists (she and I are big fans of these). Here’s a good one she recently sent me: the Best New York Movies as selected by MSN. Not a bad list. Some of my all-time favorite Gotham movies – Manhattan, Superman, The Taking of Pelham One Two Three – made the cut easily. Others that I figured would be shoo-ins – like After Hours, Dog Day Afternoon, and The Warriors – were nowhere to be found. (And how about a shout-out to Fort Apache, The Bronx, just because?)
What’s your take on these? Got any favorite New York movies of your own? I’d love to know. Jump into the fray and submit your picks.
