Filmmaker Dominic Boudreault made this awesome movie called "The City Limits" where he filmed time-lapse footage of Chicago, Toronto, New York, and Montreal and then edited it all together. Unless you know the various cities' landmarks, you can hardly tell them apart. Is it urbanist to say all cities look the same? You can't even tell which ones are in Canada and which are in the good old U.S. of A. Still, New York looks the best, right? Right?!

Anyway, things really get interesting when it goes out of the city and into the country. It even made me wish for a second I had a house upstate. [via Laughing Squid]
