I'm currently writing and rewriting what will (hopefully) be my next film project, "Nanjing East Road" - which takes place during the Asian Economic Boom of the 1980's and centers on the world of Taiwanese trading companies.

One thing that's really tough to nail in movies (which I'm struggling with now) is "business" - how do you make something which is inherently a bit dry, detailed, and quite complex into something dramatic on-screen?

Here's a list from Forbes of what they consider the top 10 greatest business movies:

1. Citizen Kane
2. The Godfather Part II
3. It's a Wonderful Life
4. The Godfather Part I
5. Network
6. The Insider
7. Glengarry Glen Ross
8. Wall Street
9. Tin Men
10. Modern Times

(note: "Trading Places" is unfortunately not included on the list)
