    What is, in your opinion, the best film ever made set in your hometown?

    Ps.: I case you live in a small city which doesn’t have a movie set there, you can say what is the best movie set in your home state.

    My favorite movie set in Rio is actually Central Station (1998), but only the very beggining the film is set in the city so I won’t count it, instead I’ll say: City of God (2002)

    Let’s use this thread as a fun way to recommend movies. I, of course, recommend my choice. Terrific film.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    I live in Canberra, Australia and my state as a result is literally the Australian Capital Territory which… is just Canberra and surrounding bushland lmao, so I’m going to go with my closest state New South Wales cause Canberra films are not very good (bad), and say Ferngully! 🧚‍♂️

    More chaotic than a soderbergh Oscars

    The only other film that wasn’t Skyfall or Paddington that I could think of were Richard Curtis movies. And I only like one Richard Curtis film lol.

    I’ll always love that great documentary of Leonard Cohen’s early, pre-musician days in Montréal, Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Leonard Cohen.
