Man on Wire

Watch it on Amazon Prime

This documentary is available on Netflix and is about a tightrope walker named Philippe Petit. On August 7th, 1974, he stepped out on a wire illegally rigged between the World Trade center’s Twin Towers in New York. The preparation for that act took years and after nearly an hour he got arrested. The documentary is full of personal footage. It’s a fascinating story about art, crime and courage.

Wolf of Wallstreet

Directed by: Martin Scorsese

Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, Jonah Hill.

Watch it on Amazon Prime / available in the U.S.

As mentioned inThe Secret Answer Of Sell Me This Pen

This movie by Martin Scorsese is available on Netflix, but also on Amazon Prime. The Wolf of Wallstreet is one of those movies that stick with you after you’ve seen it. The movie is centered around this penny stock broker called Jordan Belfort. The broker went to prison for 22 months because in the nineties he orchestrated a big financial crime by making a fortune on shady sales of penny stocks. The movie made an big impression on me. Belfort spent a crazy amount of money on drugs, sex and other self-indulgences and the movie is just full of scenes that are just wild. The whole movie builds up to the moment that everything in his life collabs. It’s highly fascinating to me how money, sex and drugs but more importantly power can bring people to unprecedented extremes.

Kings of Pastry

As mentioned in: 5 documentaries that will spark your creativity.

This documentary from 2010 portraits sixteen chefs who compete for a prestigious prize, awarded by Meilleur Ouvrier France (MOF). From beginning to end, the whole documentary revolves around that one question: How do you earn the prestigious prize for the most skilled pastry chef in France? Every chef is allowed to show his extraordinary professional skills to a respected jury for the length of three days, hopefully winning this prize for life at the end. It’s a nerve-racking process of getting the ultimate recognition that every chef dreams of, which involves a lot of blood, sweat and tears. Along the way you really got sucked into this obsession of winning the competition.
