In response to “The 25 best business movies”
I’m going to have to make the case for the original “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” (1971). Besides enjoying the successes of a business model based on quality, coolness, innovation and anticipation, Willy Wonka elects to “insource” foreign workers, the Oompa Loompas, and conducts history’s most intense job interview ever to choose his successor.
As for Glengarry Glen Ross…one thing to mention is that later in the movie when Jack Lemmon’s character has just made what is believed to have been a major sale, it turns out that his client was a senior citizen with dementia and that his check that was used as payment was totally worthless, leaving Lemmon’s character far behind in his sales quota and in trouble.

Ever read the story of the Good Samaritan?
