  2. Bruno's rating of the film Network

    Howard Beale é tratado como um visionário - os árabes estão tomando conta disto, profecia ele

  3. jewelsofglory's rating of the film Network

    Fantastic film, a must see.

  4. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Network

    The ills of the corporatisation of not only broadcast news, but the world at large in this scabrous attack on commutable integrity, exploitation and contempt. It's ugly stuff but brilliantly played with crackle and fizz and staged by a Director who knew how to read a script. Perhaps the closet Hollywood has yet come to opera, albeit ranted from a soapbox. Sad to say it's not prescient, just nothing changes.

  5. kinotopia's rating of the film Network

    some self-aware, timeless moments but overall a didactic and grossly inaccurate portrayal of the formulaic and conservative world that is news programming. strong start is compromised by degenerative, escapist subplots and outbursts of terrible overacting. ending could not have been lazier.

  6. Blue Roses's rating of the film Network

  7. LauraPalmer's rating of the film Network

    Rewatched and re-loved. I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE.

  8. Michael Peer's rating of the film Network

    This is what a masterpiece looks, sounds, and feels like. Network speaks more today than it did in 1976 and is even funnier given our political reality. Working off Paddy Chayefsky's incredible script, utilizing some of the greatest actors of all time, and in the hands of Sidney Lument, Network is a slam dunk. The satire works so well because the film is so grounded - there is no score, just bleak human reality.

  9. Freakyfilm's rating of the film Network

    Alienation, control of the media, ratings, Orwell..... better formula?!

  10. MistaRichard's rating of the film Network

    Very few movies (or even none) are as amazingly well written as this one.

  11. salty_candy's rating of the film Network

    the means of communication changed, the rest stayed the same. this movie is still relevant

  12. Mar J's rating of the film Network

  13. FISCHER's rating of the film Network

    Une méchante caricature / diatribe contre l'hypocrite milieu d'une chaîne de TV américaine, au grotesque quelquefois outrancier, hélas pas toujours maîtrisée... www.cinefiches.com

  14. ermete polpette's rating of the film Network

  15. Pedro Ramos's rating of the film Network

    "I'm mad as hell and I'm not gonna take this anymore!"

  16. Vickie Retallick's rating of the film Network

    Very relevant but made me feel a bit uncomfortable due to its message. Glad the BBC/mubi/every media outlet isn't like this. Lowest common denominator. Despite being an anarchist, some of his mad rumblings reminded me of Trump (horseshoe theory?)

  17. Malt Frisky's rating of the film Network

    The hilarity of Howard Beale's mental breakdown to hearing the voice of God and then switching to hearing the voice of a CCA Chairman of television to preach to the masses is so out there that they actually pulled it off with well deserved Oscar acting that cemented this play of corporate popularity and madness to work. Though the radical terrorist is just there for a plot device it still finds a way to fit in.

  18. Mia Calavera's rating of the film Network

    Network reveals the bizzare world behind the media, desperate to conform and please. After 40 years, this issue is still very current and relevant, with everyone being able to communicate via internet and having the same unexplicable need to be seen and loved by as many as possible.

  19. Dalibor's rating of the film Network

    Both straightforward and metaphorical. Judgmental and nihilistic. Far-reaching and direct. Comical and dead serious. Whether you bought it or not, finding it a profoundly prophetic case for Debord's "spectacle society" or just an over-explaining exaggeration spoiled by occasional acting mannerism, its marvelous writing presents the thesis so convincingly it's bound to provoke an argument.

  20. Henrique Amud's rating of the film Network

    This reality show is terrifying. Everyone is SO. FUCKING. AMAZING.

  21. CafeGradiva's rating of the film Network

  22. f-nanda's rating of the film Network

    Seriously, I'm scared. That's so fucking accurate! It's really funny that they used a psych in the movie, because it's like this '76(!!!) movie "predicted everything about modern media".

  23. Skinnedteen's rating of the film Network

    Truely a prophecy of modern times.

  24. Aube James's rating of the film Network

    I admire Paddy Chayefsky a lot. He's brilliant.
