Rural Noir: Crime Films Set In Small Towns/Cities

Films need to take place predominantly in small towns or cities, in any country around the world. Tried to leave off "on the run" films that cover too much ground (like Midnight Run) but allowed some that stick to one particular area well (like Badlands).
