We narrowed down the responses to what we think are the top five, plus one honorable mention.
Yes, we know we missed a few goodies such as “Wag the Dog” and “Jerry McGuire,” but those are on everyone’s list; I wanted to highlight a few others in their place.
“Thank You for Smoking“ – Nick Naylor portrays a smooth talking tobacco lobbyist, but he seems to be more of a publicist. He doesn’t deny the health risks of smoking, but still defends the cigarette industry. It’s a great illustration of the work of spin, which (as we all know) sucks.
“The Social Network” – Who doesn’t like a drama about the guy who created the world’s largest social network with more than 900 million users? (For those living under a rock, I’m talking about Facebook.) This movie tells a great business story encompassing both digital media and traditional public relations.
