Top 6 Analytical Movie Moments

I’m sure I’m missing any number of different scenes spanning multiple movies.  Here were the top six I’ve come across in my lifetime.  I’ve themed them according to the different lessons they teach us in analysis.
The Spanish Prisoner on “Proprietary Information and Layman’s Terms”
(Note: You never find out what “The Process” is in the movie.)
October Sky on “Obsession and Problem-Solving”
A Serious Man on “Uncertainty and Complexity”
Once Upon a Time in the West on “Miscalculating”
(Note: Charles Bronson’s character does survive.)
Moneyball on “Breaking Biases"
Good Will Hunting on “Education vs. Intelligence”
