Film noir 

What your neighbors are watching

Netflix -- next to ice cream the world's greatest innovation -- now allows you to browse the films that residents in individual cities are watching more than other Netflix members. And, oh, how we match our stereotypes.

Atlanta's top five:

1) Lost in the Pershing Point Hotel -- A drag queen gets her groove on in mid-'70s Atlanta.

3) The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till -- Documentary on the Civil Rights icon.

4) Dave Chappelle: Killin' Them Softly -- A comedy special filmed before he disappeared and all that shit.

5) The Man I Love -- "What gay man hasn't sat by a pool and dreamed of declaring his love to a beautiful straight boy whose Speedo fits just right?" Really: That's the blurb.

Alpharetta's top five:

1) Aladdin: The Platinum Edition -- It's Alpharetta; Did you expect the silver edition?

2) Snatch -- Is it that Brad Pitt speaks a Gypsy dialect that no one understands? Or that he's shirtless a lot?
