When my sister was returning to Albuquerque after attending our uncle’s memorial service, she briefly wondered if she was in another country when she was driving through Las Vegas, New Mexico. The movie companies shoot a lot of films in that area (such as No Country for Old Men).
Sure enough: the overpass she photographed is being used as the set for an upcoming movie starring Robert Downey, Jr. and Juliette Lewis.
Who knows what is real anymore??
