    Diana Christensen is a television executive. She's in charge of programming. Her job is to get as many people as possible to watch her programs. Diana, as one character eloquently puts it, is the incarnation of television. Not a person but a machine whose only interest lies in her ratings. Every idea she has, and every word she utters is geared towards making the ideal television program. A madman professing doom? Perfect. A terrorist group committing violent crimes on screen?…

    Didn't hit me as hard as it hit others. Maybe that's because before I put it on my friend described it as "Life changing good". It's all Billy's fault.

    Oof. I did not enjoy "Network." Maybe it was great in its time, but it doesn't hold up. A mediocre movie with a great character and performance in Peter Finch's Howard Beale.

    "Network": Well, it was thoroughly entertaining. As I said before, "I'm as mad as hell as I'm not going to take it!"

    For a good hour or so Network is an effective deconstruction of the television industry. It is, however, a film of two halves. As Lumet realises he's onto something special he becomes more and more blinded by the potential for his film to do well in awards season.

    It slowly but surely becomes a shouty, plethora of performances all clambering to steal the limelight. Faye Dunaway, William Holden, and Peter Finch are the three prime candidates (and were all subsequently…

    Everyone needs to watch this and understand it. It's been almost forty years since this movie was made but nothing has really changed in regards to media and world corruption.

    In one of the most perfect films ever made, Lumet gives a message that television and corporations are the reality in the modern world.
