Severely underrated. This should have walked home with dozens of Oscars. Dozens I say! It didn't get nominated for any Oscars. Andy Griffith knocked it out of the park, as did Patricia Neal. Sometimes when you hold up a mirror to society it frightens people. Marlon Brando was nominated for that embarrassment called 'Sayonara'. Lana Turner was nominated for that soap opera 'Peyton Place'. What a world!
Wow, wow, wow... Better than Network and Meet John Doe. Great masterpiece, especially first one hour and the final (unfortunately final is too long. Reminds me of Scarface and Sunset Blvd, of course LOTR: Return of the King style!). "Behind every successful man there's a woman". This is my third Patricia Neal movie and third is a masterpiece, again. She is gorgeous. I adore her. Black Mirror fans must see this movie.
A movie 50 years ahead of its time that ALMOST makes Network look like an episode of Maury. Andy Griffith steals the show and Elia Kazan's direction is tight. A fantastic cast and an even greater story.
A vastly underrated film to say the least. I never anticipated this curb ball of a masterpiece to hit me the way it did, especially due to its obscurity. An embodiment of the word prescient. "Network" before "Network."
One of the greatest movies ever made.
Should be mentioned in the same breath as "Citizen Kane" & "The Godfather."
Holy sweet Mother of God, it's really just damn fucking virtuoso performances by Andy Griffith (no kidding; you won't believe how good he was in this), Patricia Neal & Lee Remick and another masterpiece from HUAC buddy & name-giver Kazan. You gotta give him this: he had some major talent, this guy.
