Hey,

I'm looking for a movie to watch based on entrepreneurship/business. Anybody got any ideas?

Cheers,
Pete

Catch Me If You Can with Leonardo DiCaprio

It's not a movie about businesses or entrepreneurship, but it is about a skill that all entrepreneurs should have: the ability to sell. In this particular movie, you will see how a person can be anything just with the great skill of persuasion.

I have always loved the movie Glengarry Glen Ross Glengarry Glen Ross (film) - Wikipedia
Does it get any better than Glengarry Glen Ross? Everyone likes to cite the Alec Baldwin cameo (which is fantastic), but I think the Pacino rant toward the end is a terrific monologue. My favorite Pacino performance. All the performances are perfect. It's a perfect movie. You couldn't make it any better.

It's a classic in the Sales world, and let's face it. If you aren't selling, you probably shouldn't be doing anything. All entrepreneurs need to know selling.

I LOVE the Pacino rant myself.

Lord of War with Nicolas Cage.

I also think you guys should check that one out. The movie is based on real stories of people taking advantage of the end of the Cold War to sell the guns, ammunitions, missiles, etc. In the movie, the story goes around only one main character but in reality, those deals were being made by more than one person.

What you will learn in that movie is a few key lessons on how to always set up systems to get paid, how to avoid and prevent fights with the people you are doing businesses, etc.
In my opinion, a great movie for entrepreneurs.

Pirates of Silicon Valley is a good one about the beginnings of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates.

'Hidden Figures' is a great movie, it's not as such an Entrepreneur movie as it is inspirational. Your boundaries are only kept bounded by you.

Nightcrawler (best entrepreneur movie personally)
others below have also strong points/lessons to take home.

The Social Network
"If you guys were the inventors of Facebook, you'd have invented Facebook."
"A million dollars isn't cool. You know what's cool? A billion dollars"

Moneyball (it's a process)
"f your enemies are making mistakes, don't interrupt them."
"Your goal shouldn't be to buy players. Your goal should be to buy wins. In order buy wins, you need to buys runs."
"here are rich teams and there are poor teams. Then, there's 50 feet of crap. And then there's us."

Boiler Room (highly unethical stock brokers)

Steve Jobs (with fasbender)
"It's not binary. You can be decent and gifted at the same time."
"The musicians play their instruments. I play the orchestra."

Wolf of Wallstreet (wolf of fastlane)
"The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve it."

Margin Call (2008 economic "collapse", bank)
"There are three ways to make a living in this business: be first, be smarter, or cheat."
"You know, the feeling that people experience when they stand on the edge like this isn't the fear of falling - it's the fear that they might jump."

Flash of Genius (inventor of windshield wipers)
The Town (family business)
Limitless (entertainment)
Straight Outta Campton
Whiplash
(Hard work works)
8 Mile (Consistency)
Big Short (based on book from same writer as Moneyball)
Pursuit of Happiness
American Gangster
Scarface

Carlito's Way

"The dream don't come no closer by itself. We gotta run after it now."

Blow
"Life passes most people by while they're making grand plans for it. Throughout my lifetime, I've left pieces of my heart here and there. And now, there's almost not enough to stay alive. But I force a smile, knowing that my ambition far exceeded my talent."
