New York City: Taxi Driver. Dog Day Afternoon (Brooklyn). Moonstruck (Brooklyn). Fort Apache, The Bronx. The Warriors. The Taking of Pelham 123. King Kong (!).
I haven't looked yet, but if Indiana is not either (a) Hoosiers or (b) Breaking Away or (c) The Magnificent Ambersons (directed by O. Welles), whoever compiled the list is crazy.
Well, I'm in the minority, not that big a fan of A Christmas Story. There's nothing intrinsically "Indiana" about it, either.
Living in Massachusetts, I'd add The Last Detail.
For DC--All the President's Men? Dr. Strangelove?For Maryland, I'd take Diner.Not-a-New-Yorker, but I'm awfully fond of Hester Street and Crossing Delancey.For the states I've lived in besides Indiana:Illinois: Young Mr. Lincoln surely deserves a nod.Kentucky: I'm OK with Coal Miner's DaughterWest Virginia: Matewan is a masterpiece.Wisconsin: not a stellar list, but The Way of All Flesh (1927) or Wisconsin Death Trip.
