Review - Network
A cynical look at television and how exploitative it is. The movie is considered a classic for pointing out the future, with scandal and "reality" television as entertainment. That may be so, but I've personally responded by turning it off and didn't really enjoy having it smeared in my face by this movie. There were no characters to root for. It didn't miss an opportunity to throw in pointless crude language. It seemed to be saying, "Hey, it's all filth. Let's admit it and wallow in it."
