When production people profile a city, they take the essence of the place and play it up.

In CSI, Vegas is sleazy. Loose. Easy. A slutty, dirty town covered with glitter.

New York is always depicted on TV or movies as tough, cosmopolitan and sometimes romantic.

Washington is official, formal. Boston is affluent. London is bookish. Liverpool is drunk. Bangkok drips with sex.

Beijing is confusing. Moscow is rough.

What would KL be? What would Kuantan be?

What's the spirit, the essence of the cities here? Maybe that's a movie.
