Finance Related Movies and Documentaries

avatar

Some of the things I know right now are things I learnt while watching movies. Movies play a major role in our lives and they influence our knowledge. I prefer to watch a movie than read a book that’s the reason I can never read the Harry Potter book series or The Lord Of The Rings.

In finance, movies has also given us a glimpse of ideas about some certain secrets in the finance. Some of these movies show us some experiences most people have made in their financial lives that we can learn from.

In the list, some of them are True Story while some of them are either Fiction or Financial Documentary.

I will be categorizing them :

Enron: The Smartest Guys In The Room

To be honest, I can't remember. But at the back of my mind, Enron popped up when i read your post. I got a flashback of the name Enron appearing in a few books I've read. I just can't seem to remember who or what it is.

A problem i may or may not have: poor memory. I wonder how i pass my studies to be honest.

Good list. I just watched Margin Call last night.

I will say Boiler Room holds something special for me since I use to caddy for the guy who owned the firm in real life. It was JP Marlin in the film but the real name was JT Moran.
