Top 50 Business Films

Top 50 Business Films's icon

Created by BaalMan.

Favorited 20 times, disliked 1 time, added to 25 watchlists.

Based on many lists made by Business magazines and websites and consulting companies. The films aren't only about business but also films that businessmen, business students, traders and entrepreneurs should watch.
Sporadically updated.

Bonus: 15 additional films (after so many lists, we can have more interesting films)


Methodology:

Eligibility: Lists with 10 to 30 entries.
Not eligible: too specific lists such as "available on Netflix", documentaries only, "best of the decade", etc. and lists made by users in imdb, mubi, icm, etc

Distribution of points:
For ranked lists:
#1: 20 points
#2: 18 points and so on until #10: 2 points
#11 or lower: 1 point
Not ranked lists: points are splitted equally.
For instance: lists with 15 entries: 20+18+...+2+1+1+1+1+1=115 / 15 = 7.67 => 8 points for each film.
Tied films split the points
Bonus for each additional entry: 2 points

Tie-brake rules:
#1: Total of points
#2: Number of entries
#3: Year of release
#4: Alphabetical order
