New York became the 11th state of the United States of America in 1788. These movies have a connection with New York. They are (partially) filmed there or it's a topic in the story.

So, whether from the intensity and brilliance of the acting or the realism and poignancy of the writing, or both, which of these movies best tackled the difficult subject of PTSD?

The Climax is in the Title
*SPOILERS in the Descriptive Texts Some titles get their full meaning when the movie reaches its climax. Of course, sometimes, we expect the titular 'plot element' to play a key role at the climax, sometimes, we don't even know what the title means (is it literal or symbolic?) until that very part but either ways, the film's final impact is twice more satisfying because it's both emotionally rewarding and it gives the title its meaning. So, which climactic moment best met the expectations you made from the title? Discuss here Titular settings and protagonists are not included as they're expected to be part of the climaxes.
