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)

yes..rear window filmed in hollywood, oops..

but, Harry and Tonto looks great..from that i got to looking up Joe Madden..pretty much all his roles are from films made in made in nyc and are ones i'd never heard of, but now want to check out:

Next Stop, Greenwich Village (1976) .... Old Poet
Harry and Tonto (1974) .... Panhandler
Godspell: A Musical Based on the Gospel According to St. Matthew (1973) (uncredited) ....
The Owl and the Pussycat (1970) .... Old Man Neighbor
Pound (1970) .... Colonel
The Landlord (1970) .... Grandfather Enders
Putney Swope (1969) (as Joe Engler) .... Mr. Syllables

especially Putney Swope..

Don't forget the highly underrated comedy QUICK CHANGE. Bill Murray, Geena Davis and Randy Quaid as bank robbers desperately trying to get out of Manhattan before they're caught by Jason Robards. "You people can KEEP this city!"

Cassavetes' Shadows



William Greaves' Symbiopsychotaxiplasm is kind of interesting.

I (and by 'I' I mean abstraction) should compile these into a comprehensive list.

Just watched "Before the Devil Knows Your Dead" - amazing. Also almost done reading "American Psycho" - that is some fucked up shit.

Killing of a Chinese Bookie is very much an LA film. A good Cassavetes NYC film is Husbands.

Curtis, have you been to that Cemetery over across the Newtown in Queens? I just learned today that the funeral scene from the Godfather was shot there. We should go explore that place soon. Also, Donnie Brasco was primarily shot in our hood. I've been meaning to check it out again and see where it was shot.

Recently subscribed to Netflix and have caught up on some NYC films. After Hours is one I don't think that has been mentioned. Maybe it has. But it's got some really great 80's Soho footage. I've never seen it before and was really into it, not so much for the NYC footage but for the style of the film. Finally caught the Naked City but was unimpressed. Some great footage of 40's Jackson Heights and LES, and a great scene under the Manhattan Bridge. Need to give Dassin more chances, though. Recently re-watched Squid and the Whale, which has shots in Park Slope and Ditmas Park, and Mr. Jealousy for the first time, shot in the Greenwich/West Village region I believe.

The best New York film I've watched recently has to be the French Connection, if only for the subway scene - I actually jumped on the MTA website while watching that scene to see how accurately it was edited and they got it dead-on.

That cemetery also features prominently in several Truman Capote short stories..I'll go explore anytime, I've been fascinated and curious about it for awhile. Have you been to Woodlawn, way up in the Bronx? One of the most beautiful places around..and lots of famous dead people too.

Have I never seen Donnie Brasco? I don't think I have..on the list, thanks.
