Sidney Lumet United States, 1976

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.
