  1. G. Thomas Esmay's rating of the film The Hospital

    10/10. Gonzo combination of satiric comedy, serial killer thriller and dramatic character study, THE HOSPITAL has to be seen to be believed. George C. Scott's performance is a career best.

  2. patchwork's rating of the film The Hospital

    Satira drammatica sul mondo ospedaliero statunitense. Paradossalmente funziona meglio quando le parti di denuncia (un po' datate) lasciano spazio al lato emotivo. Gran merito della sua riuscita va all'ottimo George C. Scott, che riesce con il suo tormentato personaggio a dare umanità e verosimiglianza a un'opera che alle volte tende a scivolare verso il macchiettistico.Alla sceneggiatura c'è Paddy Chayefsky e si vede

  3. Illusion Travels By Streetcar's rating of the film The Hospital

    "This is actual film history, not bullshit theories about Camp by schoolteachers." http://illusionpodcast.blogspot.com/2015/04/episode-54-paddy-chayefskys-dilemma.html

  4. Knut Morte's rating of the film The Hospital

    AH, the American health care system

  5. Barboza's rating of the film The Hospital

    "What do you want me to say to the boy's mother, that a nurse ASSASSINATED him?"

  6. This is Jake Kath's rating of the film The Hospital

    Not only is it a complex dry dark comedy but its also an engaging character study! George C. Scott delivers such an amazing performance that balances depression and moral responsibility. Though I think Network established Paddy Chayefsky as an unique voice, this shows him as a good storyteller.

  7. Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film The Hospital

    Chayefsky is almost infallible at giving the toughest and loudest social and existencial commentaries under the veil of comedy. He did that flawlessly in "Marty" and "Network", but not here. Still, George C. Scott is magnificent, as always. His rage and tortuous pain seem on the surface all the time, like he really was the character he plays.

  8. cinemaofdreams's rating of the film The Hospital

    If only Paddy Chayefsky were still around.

  9. Cbarky99's rating of the film The Hospital

    If the movie feels chaotic and fragmented, that's the point. Dr. Bock's angst may not be that far removed from, say, R. Crumb's Whiteman, but George C. Scott's performance is remarkable enough in channeling the guttering embers of the man Bock used to be that it's remarkably easy to connect with him. In that sense, the matter-of-factness with which a 'happy' ending is rejected by the film is quite striking

  10. T. J. Harman's rating of the film The Hospital

    I know Network is technically a better film but something about this film keeps me coming back more often. I LOVE George C. Scott. I love George C. Scott's face. If a movie features him in some kind of despair I'm there. The dialogue is needless to say great. I really Rigg too in this film.

  11. Roscoe's rating of the film The Hospital

    Brilliant performances save a rather over-heated script that Chayefsky re-tooled to better effect in NETWORK a few years later.
