In my opinion the film “The Day After Tomorrow” (2004) is a typical example for that fascination with ruins and the own decay. Sure it pretends to be a warning against the effects of global warming. But essentially the film itself and probably every viewer is much more attracted by the beautiful images of the destroyed New York. All that politically correct nonsense about global warming or cooling (who will believe that it could be happen like this?) is a lame excuse to present the frozen New York.
I think, it has to be New York, no other city in the whole world could provide this effect.
