Network, the movie

I watched it the other night. Funny to think of how this movie came out in 1976–years before the exploitive talk shows like Geraldo, Jerry Springer, et al.

Faye Dunaway was spectacular in this film. She played a one-dimensional character whose live revolves (too much) around her job in news journalism, and she played it very well.

The movie came across to me as a dark comedy. I had to chuckle at how flippantly they decided to kill off a person, simply because the ratings were bad and that killing them would be the best thing for them.

Yes, this is the same movie with that line, “I’m as mad as h**l, and I’m not going to take it anymore!”
