    I really enjoy to watch movies. Especially if they are motivational or inspirational to make you DO the things that you want.

    I want to use my time better. So even if I'm bored I could make it a good use of it. So help me please out.

    I am looking for movies that can be very helpful for every entrepreneur. If you could recommend 3 movies that every entrepreneur needs to watch, what would they be?

    Thanks in advance.

    I think there's a thread about this already, but:

    The Social Network - I used to put this on when i was working on my first business for motivation. Probably have "watched" it 30 times.

    Middle Men - loved this one

    I just wanted the Imitation Game, which isn't technically about business, but was nonetheless excellent and Motivational

    Nighcrawler - a heartbreaking story about a gentleman who've started from the bottom, dirt poor he learned skills from the internet and founded his business from the ground up, doing whatever it takes. Okay, maybe a bit sociopathic

    Fight Club - an inspirational movie about a group of friends who got tired of their 9-5 jobs and the corporate world so they set out to make a difference. Having come up with service that provides people a new way of being together and doing activities together they build up momentum and change the world.

    Watchmen - not really about entrepreneurship, but teaches you a valuable lesson. Your master plan? Better fucking did it 35 minutes ago. :D

    I also got some kicks out of Factotum, but it's a bit artsy and "boring" my normal definition. But it's about a guy (Bukowski) who does whatever it takes to live his dream (which is being a writer). If you want to save yourself some time Bukowski's poem Roll The Dice pretty much sums it up.

    My top 3:

    1. There will be blood (my favourite film)- ruthless, hardworking rags to riches psychotic oil tycoon against a greedy hypocritical religious figure.
    2. Godfather
    3. Rocky- the ultimate underdog film

    Although I didn't expect to, I also really enjoyed the social network

    Nice joke. Thanks guys for the replies. Keep them coming. I already watched one of the above mentioned movies. Called: Nightcrawler. That guy is a true psychopath, but he knows how to do business. I will watch the soon rest :)

    Boiler Room: if only for the Ben Affleck speech, but it's an excellent insight on the 'mind of a hustler', what people will do and what people won't ask in order to make some money.

    Office Space: I love this movie. It's motivating in that it shows a reality that millions of people live every day: comfortable and safe but horribly unfulfilled and deeply unhappy. Some gold quotes in the movie as well.

    Iono man pick any 3rd

    The Social Network

    Godfather

    The Wolf of Wall Street - This movie doesnt teach you anything really but seeing the life of Jordan Belfort up until his conviction is very very motivating (If you get rich legally, that is ;) )
