Network

Network ★★★★★

In addition to the surface plot about the dehumanizing influence of television and corporate propaganda packaged as counterculture, Network also has this really interesting message about an ageing generation trying to exist in a world that they increasingly can't relate to. Schumacher's monologue when he walks out on Diana is a brilliant confrontation of this fear that I completely missed on my first viewing. Great movie.
