Movie Review: NETWORK, 1976. Directed by Sidney Lumet

With no one to stand up for Beale left, the network let him loose on his, where he would have an opening monologue of one of his rants, which was followed by him fainting in the middle of the stage. The network set up other segments around Beale, and the show was off. Christensen started focusing on the terrorist group now, which would follow the groups’ activities as they found for whatever they believed in. This association with the group lead to one of the funnier scenes in the film, where the lawyers from both sides are trying to work out the best deal for their clients.
