Hmmm ….

Bronx Tale, Goodfellas and Once Upon a Time in America come to mind but my vote is for The Wanderers 

 

 

Good list but I'd add, The Godfather, Sleepers, I'd even add Cinderella man and Midnight Cowboy, Serpico, Dog day afternoon, French Connection.

There are so many which bring back memories of growing up in NYC during the 60s and 70s.  I can vividly see the grimy, sleazy Times Square area depicted in Midnight Cowboy.  Or NYC when it was seemingly down for the count in flicks like Serpico or The French Connection.  Plus, a sweet movie like Anne Bancroft's Fatso reminds me of an idyllic Greenwich Village.

As for Woody Allen?  No one ever shot the City better.  Every angle is like a master stroke from a gifted painter.

Brothers McMullen.  Pope of Greenwich Village.

Great ones.  "They cut off my thumb!".  

And I had such a crush on Maxine Bahns and a young Connie Britton in McMullen.  Dug the movie, too.  Lots of laughs.

Get it right..  They TOOK my thumb! :)   .19 mark

Couple more:  My wife suggested The Devil Wears Prada.  Meryl Streep is great in it and I wanted to bang Emily Blunt.

I'll add a Charles Bronson classic:  Death Wish.

Anyone mentioned Moonstruck?
