    You can find trillions movies over the internet, but these I'm listing here below are some movies every internet marketer should watch in his life.
    I watched The Social Network like 3 times, so I'm starting with that:

    1. The Social Network (by David Fincher, Zuckerberg and the birth of FB)

    2. Art & Copy (a documentary by Doug Pray about advertising industry)

    3. Winnebago Man (by Ben Steinbauer)

    4. We Live in Public (a documentary which profiles an Internet pioneer Josh Harris)

    5. The Greatest Movie Ever Sold (A documentary about branding, advertising and product placement, 2012)

    6. Steve Jobs (by Danny Boyle)

    7. Pirates of Silicon Valley (1999)



    Genral Marketing & entrepreneurial, business development, etc:

    6. Glengarry Glen Ross (a bit old, 1992)

    7. Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (more financial I guess, directed by Oliver Stone)

    8. Our Brand is Crisis (a 2005 documentary)

    9. Mad Men (this is an American period drama tv series - 7 seasons, 92 episodes)

    10. How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (very old! 1967. Armed with a "How to..." manual, an ambitious window washer seeks to climb the corporate ladder)

    11. Objectified (a 2009 documentary about the complex relationship with manufactured objects)

    12. Czech Dream (2009, Two students from the Czech Film Academy commission a leading advertising agency to organize a huge...)

    13. The Wolf of Wall Street (directed by Morgan Spurlock)

    14. Trading Places (1983 by john Landis)

    15. The Pursuit of Happiness (by Muccino, i think this film gives you a lot of motivation)

    16. Catch me if you can (2002 American biographical crime drama film based on the life of Frank Abagnale)

    17. The Men Who Built America (2012)

    18. Boiler Room (2000)

    19. Runner Runner (2013, more poker money making related)

    20. Middle Men (2009)

    21. Limitless (2011, more motivational I guess)

    22. Too Big Too Fail (by Curtis Hanson)

    I hope you can suggest/reccomend some other movies (maybe more recent than some of these ones :))

    The Social Network is one of my favorite movies.

    Silicon Valley is a pretty good TV show, sort of relates to IM - it's about a startup.

    Pretty close to straight up porn with scamming your clients as a twist.

    Another scam the client movie... no value to the long haul businessman at all.

    If you are in business to churn and burn your way though life those are fine but if you want to build a long term business, in a professional manner, send them both to the round file as they are garbage.

    My .02.

    If you watch the movie you see what happens when you scam people.

    I've seen both movies and would rather have not; if you do not watch that kind of stuff and immerse yourself in things that are positive you would be better off.

    I'm not commenting on you, I've seen your postings and believe you are a good guy, so do not take my opinion on those movies personal please.

    Both movies are "make money at all costs" movies and not a way to live if you want a long term business.

    A lot of good movies already mentioned.

    Not strictly just about IM but "Middle Men" is something worth checking out.

    I remember the minute after I watched it, I hopped online and started running some adult campaigns lol.
