Although Cronkite admits in his interview that "things are not at bad as that" as they are represented in this movie "things have become as bad as that" 30 years hence. Corporate ownership of the media has escalated to obscene levels where now 5 corporations own our networks (in Canada there are less than 10 independent media outlets presently) . This results in a polarized and sanitized view of the world represented on television and newspapers/magazines and also gives rise to oversimplification of world conditions, as the truth is masked and the world is represented in an illusory mode. Looking at the the world as a whole, roughly less than 5% of actual news makes it onto our "tabloid" news programs and is given in half truths and watered down versions where most people cannot actually piece together what truly precipitates most events.

Sydney Lumet probably did not realize what a revelation he had on his hands when he created this masterpiece. In addition, the movie stands the test of time as with some older films anachronisms exist and out of date acting reduces the film's effectiveness but not so with Network. A great piece of film making well worth the watch and a good bit of thinking afterwards. Highly recommended ... and if you like this, give "Bulworth" by Warren Beatty a watch ... also a must.

I have put off writing a review for this film for quite a long time, but I finally decided to dive straight into the maelstrom and take a stab at it.
Network is (in my opinion) one of the most important films ever made and is essential as both an angry and cynical satire (one of the greatest) and as an eye-opening experience for our modern age. I would even venture to say that this film is even more pertinent now than when it first entered theaters 28 years ago. A huge (actually staggering) amount of events have happened since then, including the rise of the computer (which is already an average, commonplace thing now) and globalism. Corporations (the object of scorn in this film) are more powerful than ever. It makes the chilling statements in this movie even more confrontational and prophetic.
Network displays terrific ensemble acting by all of the characters involved: from "leading" figure William Holden, the old-fashioned romantic left rudderless in the wake of a new ultra-consumerist culture to his icy and mechanical love interest Faye Dunaway who is the "ugly" spirit of the Network itself to his wife Beatrice Straight, the lonely, bitter, and heartbroken woman (she won an Oscar for being in merely one scene, that's how real it was!) to Robert Duvall's exaggerated performance as a cruel and money-obsessed entrepeneur to Ned Beatty's strange, almost Shakespearean portrayal of the head executive as a sort of Antichrist for Capitalism to the small but gritty and ferocious roles of the quasi-Communist radicals who also end up tangled in the web of the Network and scrambling for their own "share".
Then we come to Peter Finch.

I can't count the number of great works of art heedlessly junked by the studios with terrible transfers. I don't care about special features. I care about respect for the films, and respect for the buying public. This transfer is a disgrace. Other Warners transfers -- Cabaret, All The President's Men, Deliverance, don't get me started on more -- follow suit with ruinous presentations. Stop buying these titles. Force the studios to respect the fact that none of us have money pouring from our pockets; that we've had enough; that we buyers are the market for these life-lifting works of art; that we demand proper due given these treasures. The studios work for us, not the other way around.

No review here. Just some pleading. WB has done some wonderful "Special Editions", granted, that almost make up for their terrible presentations of some classics.
There isn't a film more ripe for the "Special Edition" treatment than the perfect "NETWORK". With Lumet, Dunaway and Duvall all still active, their potential contribution could make this a real treasure.
For godssake, "SPACE JAM" (!) even got this treatment, and I'm talkin' "NETWORK" here . . .

"I'm mad as hell...and I can't take it anymore." Those words out of this movie will live on for a long long time.
It captures the essence of TV sensationalism gone mad. The movie was before its time, because many of the trends it suggested are present in today's ridiculous shows like "Fear Factor" and many of the other absurd reality shows...and of course, the worst of the worst is Jerry Springer...a show that capitalizes on people's tragic lives and unhappiness. Anything for ratings, right??
"Network" has a lot to say and more people need to experience what the movie is really trying to get across.

This was the winner of 4 Oscars back in 1976, ultimately losing the Best Picture Oscar to "Rocky." But this film garnered every acting nomination across the board, winning three: Best Actress(Faye Dunaway), Best Actor(Peter Finch), Best Supporting Actress(Beatrice Straight). Other acting nominations included William Holden for Best Actor and Ned Beatty for Best Supporting Actor. Obviously, the acting here is amazing! Sidney Lumet's direction is also stellar, with fluid transitions and a professionalism that makes one forget how well-directed this film actually is. But the star of this film is screenwriter Paddy Chayefsky. Back in 1971 he won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for "The Hospital" and wrote nothing else for the screen until "Network" in 1976 for which he won another Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. His writing for "The Hospital" is excellent, but his writing here is unprecedented. The writing is razor-sharp and savagely funny, primarily satirizing the television industry in all its lunacy. My favorite lines from the film are witty plays on poor journalism like the title of my review or "a wanton fiscal affront to be resolutely resisted." The next time you watch the news, particularly sporting news, listen for those annoying phrases where the newscaster uses absurd word-play, usually as a segue. This film actually changed my outlook on all entertainment industries, from television to radio, and showed me how everything is commercialized. We live in a capitalist society, so it is little wonder why networks are "in the boredom-killing business" to make money. Keep the viewers sedated with artificial bliss and you can make them believe anything.Read more ›
