Forget Red States and Blue States. There's one thing that connects all Americans -- the movies -- and to prove it, Subtonix, an intrepid Internet content creator, designed a map of the United States, replacing state names with the title of a movie that he felt represented each of the 50 states.
Some are really obvious -- Nevada gets 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,' New Jersey gets 'Clerks,' Kansas gets 'The Wizard of Oz' -- and some are a stretch -- 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High' for California, 'Gummo' for Ohio, 'Jesus Camp' for both North Dakota and Missouri. And some seem to mystify people -- The Huffington Post, which picked up on the map early Wednesday, couldn't figure out why 'Fargo' represented Minnesota.
Which brings up something else interesting about the map: SlashFilm points out that more Coen Brothers films appear than any other filmmaker.
