    “The opening titles appear over a tracking, bird’s eye helicopter shot of Chicago that emphasizes the concrete, manmade rigidity of the kind of city planning that intentionally keeps poor minorities out of the areas trod by the moneyed and desirable. […] real-life Chicago housing project Cabrini-Green (since demolished)”
    It was demolished because it was on the near north side, right near the area trod by the moneyed who were upset by the lack of said planning. I know you’re from Chicago and know that, but it’s an odd juxtaposition.

      It definitely isn’t lost on me! For what it’s worth, I’m from St. Louis but I went to college in Chicago.
