Check It Out.

When you think about it, McDonald’s always served breakfast after 10:30. If you had a gun.

It’s interesting to see how Dick and Mac McDonald developed the conveyor-belt process in their original drive-in restaurant, and downright fascinating to see how Ray Kroc stole their idea and turned it into a billion-dollar business. There’s a very poignant moment in The Founder in which Ray tells the McDonald brothers that he’s got a greater understanding of what they’ve created than they do. Dick move, but true.

Really worth it: Michael Keaton’s portrayal of Ray, swigging gin and conning his way into control of the business. It’s pretty damn cool. This is a good movie. See it.
