Yes, it's good but more importantly it represents its time and place--Jewish Baltimore in the Eisenhower era--especially well (as do most Barry Levinson films).

I didn't see that film. "Diner" & "Avalon" were quite good.

Just off the top of my head for Philadelphia.

Creed does a good job of showing aspects of the modern urban culture of the city (most specifically North Philly), while Silver Linings Playbook does the same for its suburbs (book was set in Collingswood, while film was set in Upper Darby fyi).

Blow Out with John Travolta and directed by Brian DePalma (directly before Scarface) is super underrated and basically Philly's answer to Taxi Driver. It really puts into perspective how far Center City has come since the early 80's, and some of the shots (including one showing a porn theater on Market Street just a few blocks from City Hall) were stunning to me.
