I remember my friend at the time telling me that he wanted his nickname to be "Turk". It's the only successful self-nicknaming event ever.

Has anyone mentioned the Ed Burn's films? Brothers McMullen, She's the One.

Woody Allen's always the first thing that comes to mind, for me.

For the 70's, I think-
Dog Day Afternoon
The French Connection
Marathon Man
The Lords of Flatbush
Serpico

these are all fabulous non-70s NYC and you've probably seen them all, already:

Citizen Kane
Do the Right Thing
The Fisher King
The King of Comedy
Arthur
The Usual Suspects
On the Waterfront
Rear Window

and near and dear to my heart: Harry and Tonto (which is also 70s)
