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

Whiplash - a story about greatness

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 F*cking 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

I learned everything I know about business from The Wolf of Wall Street

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.

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 ;) )


-I'm not in danger, I AM the Danger

One that hasn't been listed and almost certain no one knows about.

The Billionaire (A Thai movie. Major language barrier but action speaks louder than words)


http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2292955/

Based on a true story too. My fellow entrepreneurs, do not miss this one. :tiphat:

How no one has mentioned "Enron: The Smartest Guys In The Room" is beyond me.

^ This movie alone showed me a lot about human nature. Fascinating what they were doing AND getting away with.
