There are plenty of films that modern men should see, but we’ve narrowed it down to ten key films that you absolutely, positively must see. These films can change your life if you let them.

  1. Crazy, Stupid, LoveIn this movie, Ryan Gosling creates the picture perfect example of how to be a modern man who knows exactly what type of man he is. Smooth, suave, and sexy. He lays out the steps to be a gentleman, and all we have to do is follow them.
  2. 500 Days of SummerThis film is a tale of sadness, but it depicts a clear example of what happens to men’s lifestyles when they endure such a tragic breakup. It’s also a good example of how to move on from them, too.
  3. The Great Gatsby (1974)Robert Redford’s Jay Gatsby is perhaps the best example of how to be a well rounded gentleman. While the movie may be over forty years old, and the story set almost a century ago, it still depicts an engaging portrait of a modern man.
  4. Fight ClubPerhaps the edgiest example, this film depicts the way modern men can live in squalor and subject themselves to all of life’s pain, and still just be searching for a place to call their own.
  5. Wolf of Wall StreetA raunchy depiction of the way modern men with wealth can be. But let’s be honest, who wouldn’t behave this way with that kind of money?
  6. The IncrediblesThis might be an animated movie targeted towards children, but that doesn’t mean that men won’t be able to watch the movie and derive the morals Mr.Incredible learns from his hardships, both how to be a better man, husband, and father.
  7. The SearchersJohn Wayne continues to set the high water mark for how to be a stoic, well rounded man. Despite being filmed decades ago, the way Wayne carries himself throughout the film still inspires men today.
  8. Pulp FictionTarantino’s classic is the epitome of cool, and modern men can learn a thing or two from the film’s two iconic hitmen.
  9. Cool Hand LukeIn this classic movie, Paul Newman shows how a good man can persevere and endure any hardship, no matter how straining and difficult it could be.
  10. Dazed and ConfusedPerhaps the movie that shaped most modern men that had their coming of age in the ‘90s, this movie depicts the kind of boys that grew up into the modern men that inhabit the world today.
