Movies for placemakers

The Project for Public Spaces posted a list of their Top 10 movies for Placemakers.  Several would be good to watch this summer.  But some of them are simply set in walkable settings, which means that The Andy Griffith Show would be just as applicable.

What else would you list?  The Truman Show?  The Sunshine State?  Bladerunner?  Pruned has a longer list from the University of Illinois. Admittedly, it is for a slightly different purpose than the PPS list, so it includes some less pleasant environments to provoke viewers and start dialogues about what doesn't work as much as what works.
