    Hi,

    I'm doing a project at school about leadership in an international context (using Hofstede's Cultural Dimensions as a basis) and I would like to show a few scenes from movies that depict good and bad examples of international leadership/interactions (preferably some funny ones, hence my use of movies instead of documentaries).


    Best regards,
    Eggert

    Dr. Strangelove was the first movie to come into my head. I think it fits pretty well with you want.

    It's been mentioned, but certainly Chaplin's THE GREAT DICTATOR is the grand-daddy of spoofs of leadership and international affairs.

    It also serves as a double-meaning, as Chaplin himself was the first international leader (through film-- everyone recognized and admired him) to not only speak up but to attack and mock the Nazis.
