Your Favorite NYC Movie?

I love movies, but American movies are usually garbage. Sorry. I like kung-fu movies or Bollywood. But there are some good American ones. The first one that comes to mind is Taxi Driver, but that's probably because I'm a taxi driver. Sometimes I do the "You talkin' to me" speech with customers, but I don't think they get it because I drive a taxi. Everyone says that speech.

I don't know. Spider-Man? That was New York, right? I liked Spider-Man. I like Batman movies better, but that's a different Gotham City. I'm sure there are others, but I can't think of them off-hand. You caught me off-guard. I don't watch many movies.

I grew up not too far from where Do the Right Thing was filmed. I watch that movie and it's like, holy shit. That's gotta be one of the best movies ever. Not just New York movies, any movie.

Dog Day Afternoon. That's one of my favorite movies. [Shame about Lumet.] Yeah it was. Real shame. A lot of his were great. Network, Serpico. I love his crime movies. He's one of the great New York filmmakers.
