Network (1976)

This movie didn’t make me mad as hell, I will take more of it! I really thought this movie was pretty cool. I love the behind the scenes looks at movies and television. Especially when it comes to the cut-throat world of ratings. This film had some wonderful acting, you could also tell that by the large amount of acting Oscars it received. Some of the monologues were fantastic and the writing was really smart, so smart that in the fugue of me being sick, a lot of the lines were admittedly going over my head. This also got a well deserved writing Oscar. If Rocky hadn’t been so amazing, this would have been a good Best Picture choice. Faye Dunaway, Robert Duvall and Peter Finch were incredible. There were a few parts where I felt a bit bored and reached for my phone, but otherwise this is a really entertaining movie and it felt really poignant to today’s media and general environment of the world. Glad I sat down for this interesting newscast of a flick.

88/100
