Question

Can anyone name books or movies in which the setting functions almost as a character? LA Story is an extreme example of that, in which the city of LA talks to Steve Martin's character through a highway sign, but in general I'm looking at things that aren't quite that literal. :)

eta: I suppose a lot of man vs. nature stories could do that as well. There's a decent definition in this short essay on setting, which boils down to the setting acting as a catalyst.

(I'm basically looking for examples to read/watch and generate ideas for something.)
