In this list i will try to find a movie to every profession i can think of. So if you think the list will be incomplete just contact me with ur suggestion.
The list will work like this, i will think of job and the first movie that comes to my mind will be the first in his category, but i will not forget other awesome movies that has one of the main characters working in that direction and that job has to have a big impact on the plot of the movie.
P.S. Sorry for my English.
