The positive female character of diana christensen in sidney lumets film network

Flag this review Catherine S May 08, This is an extremely prescient film that still feels very much like it was made inwhich is a great thing. Holden heads the money-losing network news division, where Finch, the longtime, oldtime and passe evening news anchorman is about to get the heave. I want counterculture, I want anti-establishment.

His lapse in sanity made the ratings go up. To the dismay of all, Finch announces his own axing, becoming an instant character.

If I could find it in myself to love it I would but as it stands I would call it a very good film with a great Faye Dunaway performance. Duvall saw Hackett as a "vicious president Ford ".

All I want out of life is a 30 share and a 20 rating. Reading example essays works the same way! Duvall saw Hackett as a "vicious president Ford ". The ratings skyrocket, with Howard drawing in ratings rivalled only by the likes of Mary Tyler Moore and All In the Family, and Diana is credited with the restoration and subsequent triumph of the network. His lapse in sanity made the ratings go up. One quiet moment in the film—but a dramatic sequence of the type that can endure for years as a terrific playlet exercise between thesps—has Holden discussing his infatuation with Dunaway to longtime wife Beatrice Straight. All of life is reduced to the common rubble of banality. This acting performance is perhaps the best acting performance I have ever seen I want counterculture, I want anti-establishment. You know, the type—sexless, but pushing her sex; brainless, but with a fair line of gab; in short, your total windup mechanical dame.

I apparently have a masculine temperament. Like Howard Beale was destroyed.
