Need more proof that the world is changing? Last week, the president of the National Cable & Telecommunications Association, Michael Powell, told the Senate that "the largest subscription video provider in the country today is Netflix."

In the 1960s, it was not clear that America would emerge triumphant, and Austin's mistaken assumption is understandable. For whatever reason, that scene came to mind while I was researching this list of Americans who defected to North Korea. Some of them were sold on the Communist lifestyle, some were looking for an escape from Western problems, and some were simply misled.

20 Best “New York” Movies

We’re not talking about the twenty best movies set in New York, and we’re not talking about the twenty best movies where New York comes-up in conversation. We’re not talking about postcards or props. These twenty movies earned their places on the list because New York contributes to their look, feel, sound, dialogue, and development. These twenty movies show as much about The City as they show about their characters and plots. In each film, New York deserves recognition as the best supporting actor. You may dispute the rankings, but you cannot dispute the twenty movies’ reliance on New York for much of their distinction.
