Urban Films

tIn the spring I am teaching a new class on American cities. It has an environmental focus, but also looks heavily at race and sex.

As I often do, I want to have a film assignment. What films would you suggest students watch that get at American cities in a particular time and place. Right now, I'm leaning toward Taxi Driver and Traffic in Souls (a silent about white slavery). But what do you all think?
