Ranking the Top Movies About Urbanism
Christopher and Lisa Leinberger have compiled a list of top 12 movies about urbanism. Here are the criteria for how the pair formulated the list: “First, the movies had to be popular, not obscure indie films. Second, the urban/suburban setting was an essential “character” in the film, even if a subtle one. Third, there are lessons to learn from the film about urbanism and its consequences on society, economics and the environment.”
Topping the list is Back to the Future 1 and 2, followed by Chinatown. How many more on the list do you think you can guess before you click over to the list?
