average rating MPAA rating watch rent buy
Chinatown (1974)
12345678910
  Polanski and Towne's noir classic captures the sordid water history of LA and wraps it around a fascinating, fatalistic crime plot. A SoCal classic.
Orange County (2002)
12345678910
  Occasionally hilarious, often fairly stupid (yet likeable) this orange curtain comedy also features a road trip of its own to Stanford
Bowfinger (1999)
12345678910
  Many LA locations but worth it alone for the scene where Eddie Murphy has to cross the Glendale Freeway (I have nightmare memories of just trying to drive the damn thing). Oh, and the movie's quite funny, too.
Touch of Evil (1958)
12345678910
Not Rated
  Orson Welles dark classic is set south of the border but was actually filmed in Venice Beach
Cutter's Way (1981)
12345678910
  Certainly the best film ever shot in Santa Barbara and captures the eerie, sun-drenched Spanish-influenced atmosphere in this downbeat sleeper.
We Were Soldiers (2002)
12345678910
  The Pentagon, the War Room, and all of the Vietnamese village scenes (except an interior tunnel) were filmed at Fort Hunter Liggett Military Reservation in southern Monterey County.
The Deep End (2001)
12345678910
  Lake Tahoe has never looked more haunting (and noir-ish)
Play It Again, Sam (1972)
12345678910
  Woody Allen filmed this in San Francisco because of a garbage strike in NY at the time, and it worked out perfectly; what could be a better setting for a film about a man obsessed with Bogart (look for Marin Co. locations, too)
Vertigo (Special Edition) (1958)
12345678910
  An obvious choice but would be noticeably missing; Hitchcock was the rare director of that era would would film a great deal on location; one of SF's most famous movies
Time After Time (1979)
12345678910
  Muir Woods, The Oakland Museum and a host of San Francisco locations in this underrated time travel movie
The Birds (1963)
12345678910
  Hard to resist this scary classic filmed in Bodega Bay and Bodega; will absolutely make you eye that seagull a bit more fearfully
Mumford (1999)
12345678910
  Sweet little comedy filmed all over Sonoma County
