With the return of stay at home weather i'll prolly be watching bit of the tele..

all rentals and netflix (and lost and pbs)..

started last nite with Midnight Cowboy. Schlesinger's work here is fantastic..

It reminded me of this old desire to watch films made in/about NYC and aside from pretty much all of scorcese's work (and some others), i need to fill in my list..

Suggestions?

warriors and dog day afternoon were the 2 to spring to my mind.

i've actually had this discussion with folks before (especially right after spending a few months living in ft. green) . . .

as a tv-child in the 70's with early cable and HBO sometimes i feel like i grew up in the new york of 70's movies even more than having grown up here in columbus. i knew more 70's NYC landmarks than ohio ones, i felt more like the characters of the movies i watch set there than i did like the folks i knew here in c-bus, and it just became even more like that once i started spending months on end there.

i have a HUGE soft spot of the NYC of 70's and early 80's movies . . . even more than the real NYC.

some more of my faves:

klute (god, i fucking love klute!!!)
rosemary's baby
odd couple (greatest theme EVER!)
the out-of-towners
actually most neil simon flix
network
death wish
how to succeed in advertising without really trying
breakfast at tiffany's
the godfather
the apartment
times square
igby goes down (rules!!!)
serpico
the fisher king
ft apache, the bronx
night shift (i love this move more than i should admit in public)
on the waterfront was hoboken, but that's close enough
the producers
the professional
shaft, superfly, across 110th street, and most other major blaxploitation
french connection
highlander

and perhaps the best representation of new york city on film:
after hours (easily in my top 5 all-time flix)

That's a good list of classic films period. Not just NYC films.
