    Hey everyone!

    I am writing an essay on American Cities and the way they are represented in the movies. I need to take two movies, so I chose "Boyz n the Hood", to show the representation of American City in the ghetto and now I need the second movie...

    I was thinking of "The Godfather" to show how the city is corrupted and that not everyone who comes to the USA lives the American Dream.

    Any opinions?
    Thanks :)

    How about Scarface? You could talk about how Miami blew up because of all of the big drug lords down there. The city just kept growing because of drug money. I can't remember the entire story about Miami but there's a lot of history there if you look it up. Anyway, this kind of ties in with the movie Scarface. There are probably other movies in regards to the whole Miami/drugs thing but I can't think of anymore right now. I really like the Godfather one that you chose too.

    yeah Scarface and Miami is a good choice. The city was pretty much built on drug money
