This past weekend, I watched The Big Kahuna with my parents, and I’m thinking about the business of movies — and the movies of business.
Bilge Ebiri’s New Guy is a new entrant worth considering. A newcomer to an eerily anonymous business gets locked in the office overnight, and what might have been just a cinematic portrayal of the first 60 days on a new job becomes a thriller of sorts. While I have yet to see the movie — which you should look for — I’m imaging equal parts Being John Malkovich and What the Bleep Do We Know?
What are your favorite movies about business? Who are you favorite cinematic business people?
