SHOWDOWN No. 44: A City So Nice They Named It Two Times In A Row

THE BIG APPLE:

The TriBeCa Film Festival is upon us, so welcome to the first—but not the last—Showdown to celebrate an entire city on screen. We want your Big Apple favorites. It’s the city most trashed by superhero movies, most danced-in by Greta Gerwig, most fought-over by the Warriors. So whistle down Travis Bickle and stare into Zoltar’s eyes to work out your 10 most beloved films set in New York City. Yes, this includes all five boroughs—but not New Jersey, not even if you can see the Manhattan skyline. Ya gotta be in it to win it. Fuggedaboudit, we’re walkin’ here!
