If you believe yourself to be a cinephile, one who loves movies, then you should definitely spend some time and watch this one.
Currently available on Amazon Prime.
I believe that this film was quite prophetic in its time; from the profound speeches of Howard Beale screaming,
“I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!” to Ned Beatty’s Arthur Jensen explaining how the world works,
“You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and peoples. There are no nations. There are no peoples. There are no Russians. There are no Arabs. There are no third worlds. There is no West. There is only one holistic system of systems, one vast and immane, interwoven, interacting, multivariate, multinational dominion of dollars. Petro-dollars, electro-dollars, multi-dollars, reichmarks, rins, rubles, pounds, and shekels. It is the international system of currency which determines the totality of life on this planet.”
Catch it while it is streaming. I would love to hear your thoughts on this film.
