The Narrows neighbourhood of Gotham City in Batman Begins was directly inspired by the Walled City, according to director Christopher Nolan, and the oppressive urban environments of Blade Runner, some of William Gibson's seminal cyberpunk stories and even the City Blocks in last year's Dredd all feel influenced by it.

Lots of us have probably never heard of Kowloon Walled City, a maze like slum that at one time was said to be the most densely populated place on the planet. But I'm totally geeking out over it. Big time.

Batman's been there, sort of. Jean Claude Van Damme has walked its streets, if they can be called that.

Cribbing from Wikipedia, Kowloon Walled City was a largely ungoverned and lawless neighbourhood that existed on the fringes of Hong Kong, literally and figuratively, for decades. Built on the site of an old fort, land that technically belonged to neither the Chinese nor British governments, it was a ramshackle sprawl of cheaply built, densely packed apartment buildings that had no legitimate sources of electricity, running water or civic infrastructure.
