Jason Bateman Top Movie

Juno (2007)-7.4

There’s so much to love about this film, which manages to capture the many emotions associated with pregnancy, in particular an unplanned one. Though obviously the story focuses on Juno, the titular character who contends with an unplanned pregnancy, Bateman also shines as Marc, one half of the couple who plans to adopt her child. He seems to completely lose himself in the role of a middle-aged former rocker who is trying to figure out his life, what he wants and, just as importantly, what he needs.

Disconnect (2012)-7.5

For better and worse, communication shapes every aspect of modern life. Whether it’s social media or television, no one can escape its reach, and this film explores the many ways that communication disrupts our senses of self and the bonds between us. Bateman plays the character of Rich, a lawyer whose daughter has a nude image of her shared with classmates. As he always does, Bateman infuses the role with charm and pathos, showing a father’s struggle with the way that young people (mis)use technology.

Ozark (2017– )-8.4

This is, in many ways, the golden age of the crime drama. It’s not surprising, really. After all, the financial collapse that occurred over a decade ago challenged all of the assumptions that America usually has about its sense of self and, of course, the criminal has always been an appealing part of popular culture. Small wonder that this Netflix series received so much popularity and critical acclaim. It certainly helps that Bateman brings so much of his signature charisma to the role of Martin, a man who must engineer a money laundering scheme.

Arrested Development (2003– )-8.7

There’s no question that this is the series with which Bateman will probably always be associated. It is not an exaggeration to say that it is one of the fiercest and most biting comedy series ever written, the source of numerous memes, internet commentary, and a very devoted fandom. Bateman’s character Michael Bluth, a man who does everything in his power to keep his eccentric (and dysfunctional) family from utter collapse (with decidedly mixed results).

Favorite Quotes from Jason Bateman

“I remember my dad working with me on breaking down my script and writing out a back story for my character and all that stuff.” – Jason Bateman 

I did a good bit of episodic television directing, but directing a movie is so much more complicated. And there’s so much more responsibility because the medium is very much a director’s medium. Television is much more of a producer’s writer’s medium so a lot of the time when you’re directing a television show they have a color palette onset or a visual style and dynamic that’s already been predetermined and you just kind of have to follow the rules.” – Jason Bateman 

“My comedic instinct is a little bit more rooted in – my mother’s British so I’ve always been more of the dry receiver of the crazy as opposed to the initiator of the crazy. I’m kind of predisposed to be the straight man.” – Jason Bateman 

“It takes some intelligence and insight to figure out you’re gay and then a tremendous amount of balls to live it and live it proudly.” – Jason Bateman 

“I can be on a telephone call, and be emailing or texting somebody else, as well.” – Jason Bateman 

Lessons from Jason Bateman About Money and Business

Jason-Bateman-lessons

Let’s take a look at some of the best lessons from Jason Bateman about money and business:

Everything is Not Always as it Seems

Jason Bateman’s character appears unremarkable to those around him. He drives an old Toyota and is known for his love of Consumer Reports and frugality. He’s the last person you’d suspect of financial crimes, yet there he is doing it. It’s a reminder that just because you think you know what’s going on doesn’t always mean that you do.

Criminals Know Banking Regulations Just As Well as You Do

The smartest criminals make a point of staying on top of the latest banking regulations. They know exactly what they can and can’t do to skirt the line of legality. Breaking the law to launder money is their business, and many go about it professionally and methodically.

Risk Assessing Cash-based Business Customers

Bateman is on a constant quest to find cash-based businesses through which to launder cash—everything from unsavory enterprises to religious institutions.

Risk assessing customers and following customer due diligence (CDD) is a key step to knowing which customers have the most opportunity to exploit the banking system and pay extra attention to their actions.
