Very powerful film with solid performances!

Despite, Network being a famous classic, I was unsure whether I would like it at first because I just don't really like those kind of films but the actors and director that were involved with the film made me watch. When I did watch this film, I wasn't disappointed but I was blown away by it! What a powerful film Network turned out to be that I was gripped by all the way through. It was obviously ... read more

Two decades later, this iconic American New Wave renegade text is even more startling than it once was-was Hollywood ever this cerebral, this caustic, this ethically apocalyptic? That 90 percent of Network's satire has become fulfilled prophecy by now doesn't take the shine off of its broadsword. Reality-show whoredom, death TV, New Globalistic anti-humanism, audience as robotic consumer-it's all ... read more

Description: A fourth-place network is struggling for ratings and turns it's News division over to the entertainment division. As one of the ramifications of this move the news Anchor is fired. He goes on the air with a wonderfully daffy rant and rave session culminating in his insisting that people go to the windows and yell, "I'm mad as hel ... (more)

"More jeremiad than satire, Sidney Lumet’s well-oiled production of Paddy Chayefsky’s prophetic masterpiece follows an amoral TV conglomerate that exploits a mentally ill news anchor by turning his low-rated national news show into whorehouse entertainment. This still-prescient vivisection of modern culture’s vapidity crackles with the nervous energy of midtown’s hothouse broadcasters.—Stephen Garrett"

Film Journal 2015 (162 movies items)

"An occasionally tedious melodrama filled with monologues and temper tantrums. The script has been lauded but it contains so many ideological cores that I have a hard time calling it very good. What I mean by that is that the strings just don't stay in place. On one hand you have the most complete of them, about the effect of TV on the masses, but because it's portrayed not through simplistic means but by yet another ideological dilemma, that of capitalism vs ideology/religion/nation in the globa"

"Katsottu 18.12.2012 Viiltävä satiiri mediamaailman raadollisuudesta, skandaalihakuisesta uutisoinnista ja television turmelemasta sukupolvesta. Lumet saa koulittua esiin vahvoja roolisuorituksia. Peter Finch on erinomainen maanisena televisioprofeettana, jonka jyrkät totuudet maailmanmenosta saavat koko organisaation heilumaan ohuen nuoren päällä. Robert Duvall esittää kusipäätä, Faye Dunaway menestyksenhimoista työnarkomaania ja William Holden pällistelee hämmentyneenä ympärill"
