In your opinion: what are the most realistic movies, and what are the best movies about your home (US) state? ?

What do you mean by "realistic", almost all movies stretch reality for dramatic or comedic effect.
I will say the most realistic movies about my state, (Texas), "Friday Night Lights", "The Last Picture Show" and "Urban Cowboy".
When they were filming Urban Cowboy I was living in Pasadena Texas where they were filming, I hung out at Gilley's and had friends working in the refineries, the entire movie was almost like a depiction of an average weekend for us.

I was born in Jersey, raised in Maryland.
So basically any Kevin Smith movie would qualify for Jersey.
Maryland has to be the Wire, but that's a TV show, not a movie. I guess Patriot Games? That was partially set in Annapolis, MD which is just south of my parent's house. I recognized about a half dozen shooting locations. There was a scene where Harrison Ford is being tailed as he leaves the Naval Academy that was right along the route my bus took to take me to high school.

I thought "Do the Right Thing" was the truest depiction of Brooklyn I've ever seen on film.
Clearly made by someone who understood and had lived in Brooklyn.
