Still image from the film Network
Fired from his job, Howard Beale (Peter Finch), anchor on the UBS Evening News, snaps and begins speaking the truth on live television. Beale is dubbed the “mad prophet of the airwaves” and becomes the spokesman for a brave new world where journalism, political violence, and populist rage are the new forms of entertainment. Once celebrated as a dark satire of the American culture industry, Network is perhaps even more relevant today when its vision feels like a realized prediction. (HD presentation)
