Two weeks ago i wrote about transparency, candor, audacity and humility in “Radical Transparency – Humility balanced with Audacity“.

last week I wrote about honesty, truth, integrity, starting with my favourite modern movie romance, “Say Anything

This week three movies that speak to integrity.

No descriptions, no plot spoilers, simply three movies I love to watch, and each features strong focus on integrity.

Molly’s Game (2017)

Aaron Sorkin’s first movie as writer and director.

Great writing, great acting by Jessica Chastain and Idris Elba.

True story of a woman with integrity.



The Insider (1999)

Michael Mann working with Al Pacino and Russell Crowe on an expose of the tobacco industry.


Papillon (1973)

Wonderful book by Henri Charrière, which is even better than this great movie with Dustin Hoffman and Steve McQueen.

Honour among thieves.
