Network – 1976 – Sidney Lumet

Were Network to be made in this century the script would be substantially dumbed down; as it is it’s remarkable for the power of its language. Network portrays the cutthroat world of network television in the 70s where presenters and producers stab and screw each other in equal measure. Mad!

  1. This is the only movie reviewed in September, geez how many times did you watch before you pegged that review? I heard it was originally going to be released under the title: “Gap Year – How to get stuffed” but the movie execs wanted something less realistic and rewrote the script.
