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!

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

Roger Ellman No normal phrase, not the dull - that's funny?

Sam,
For the glory of the individual, striving, innovating and creating against all odds(some of those odds, being partly those who think money is something deserved rather than earned and created by endeavor and action) - "Atlas Shrugged" (three movies, in fact, parts 1,2 & 3). It is not perfectly acted or directed, but the story is on a grand scale.

And lighter fare but most inspiring, "Chef".

Also inspiring, funny, sad, but entertaining and demonstrating the power of persistence, "Joy" .

Enjoy the flight and happy travels!
Best,
Roger

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
