NYT: Sidney Lumet’s ‘Network’
In 1976, Lumet assailed us with a visionary film that won numerous awards, starred the brilliant Faye Dunaway in what I think is her most powerful role. It showed what America was headed toward.
With voter anger showing up everywhere, this is a good time to review Network and think about whether people will move to action or just complain.
The NYT calls it a satire – I call it all too real.
