From the article: Top 10 Architecture Thrillers
What's the best movie you've ever seen about skyscrapers or great buildings? What happened? Who starred? What made that film so great? Recommend a movie
My Father, the Genius
- Similar to My Architect, but with a somewhat less sympathetic lead...priceless for footage from the 1970s of Frank Gehry looking astonished as the protagonist essentially demolishes his own career in public...

Tall Building Movies
- How about 'Entrapment'? The movie revolves around the theft from the PETRONAS Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; I think that is where it was represented. There were several scenes that represented the Asian twin spires. It starred Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta-Jones as a master thief and an insurance investigator. What do you think?

Not a Skyscraper
- Back to the Future, 1985 directed by Robert Zemeckis, produced by Steven Spielberg, starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Llowyd, has a Green and Green house (the Dr.'s house) that is awesome. Well the entrance is featured anyway.
Skyscraper is good!
- I like the film Skyscraper and I like the actress Anna Nicole Smith. I love you, Anna!

- Entrapment offers you unusual views of the Petronas Towers. The stunts are also mind boggling. Have read Ayn Rand's Fountainhead and must confess a great read, but have not seen the film. If the product is anything close to the book, then it is must watch for all architecture enthusiasts!
