Pulp Fiction - I never spoke the same way again
In my banking career I financed hundreds of movies. Many were shit, but some very good. I generally saw only a small portion of the movies I financed as I was mostly focused on the business and the financing and never got emotionally attached to the projects. I am not not a big movie fan or even TV watcher.
Of the movies I financed, my favorites tended to be the small ones:
1. Fargo (budget was $7.0 million)
2. Usual Suspects (Budget was $11.0 million)
3. The Big Lebowski (budget, don't remember)
4. Trainspotting (budget about $2.0 million
6. 4 Weddings and a Funeral
Other notable films I financed but did not see:
1. American History X
2. Iron Man
3. X Men Rise of The Silver Surfer
4. Batman Begins
5. Fight Club
Films I financed that no one saw:
1. Snow White and The Black Forest (Sigourney Weaver)
2. Bound (Gina Gershon & Meg Tilley lesbian sex movie)
3. White Squall (Toby McGuire's first movie, directed/produced by Ridley Scott)
4. Nell (Jodie Foster wild child movie)
5. Shop Girl (Steve Martin produced and stars)
I'm done financing movies as the systemic changes in the video segment make it impossible to adequately collateralize the financing. Could see it coming and knew it was time to move on.

I don't give a shit about what you financed. But, if you've got a copy of "Bound" around I'd like to see it....
We Were Soldiers
Act of Valor
Full Metal Jacket
I remember a part in the movie fun with Dick and Jane. The first one with Jane Fonda and George Segal in 1977. Dick and Jane were living big from a great income from Dick's aerospace job. Dick lost his job and quickly goes through their savings. Dick and Jane are forced to go to Jane's very wealthy father to borrow money. The old man told Dick no, and said he wished he was in Dick's shoes. The rich old guy envied Dick's situation and said that he wish he was young and broke and had the opportunity to work and to create wealth.
As a 15 year old kid I saw the old man as a jerk for not giving them the money because it looked like he had a ton of it.
Now as a 54 year old man I see what the old guy was saying. The challenge, the hunt, the competition in the workforce is what the old man was missing. To build something from nothing.
The grass is always greener on the other side of the street.
