What are the most inspiring movies for entrepreneurs?

I will be traveling tomorrow and during the flight I would like to watch a bunch of movies that will get me pumped and ready to hit the ground running once I arrive at my destination. Can you recommend me some movies that you found to be incredibly inspiring for entrepreneurs? Many thanks!

YMMV, but

1) Movies about *evvviilll* corporations or bosses from hell. (stuff from Michael Moore or Morgan Spurlock or the Informant or Glen Garry Glen Ross). The reason those are inspirational is that they tell you what you are living behind.

2) Movies about problem-solving. Apollo 13 comes to mind. Or Oceans-11

3) Movies about how hard life/absurd is (Death of a Salesman or Waiting for Godot or anything based on Kafka)

I highly recommend Netflix's THE CHEF'S TABLE. If you can't learn entrepreneurial wisdom from these series by the time you're done watching, I suggest you don't start your own venture.

The movie, "Miracle", about how the US hockey team won gold against Russia in 1980 is a good source for inspiration. Now if you are looking for an inspiring song, my vote would be "Lose Yourself" by Eminem. The opening is awesome: Look If you had

Love it! What a bizarre yet great question. I would say Jon Favreau's "Chef".
