this has a very well done script…so many layers that play upon each other and relay back to the central themes. interesting characters…faye dunaway plays a young female who could easily have been mistaken for an old male – from her sexual attributes (she apparently doesn’t last long in bed) to the lack of what most young people possess – idealism and desire to live life. the network is so eager to exploit its one money maker that it doesn’t bother to notice the fact that he regularly speaks out against the network….not only does the network take life from everything it touches, it even implodes upon itself. of course with a bit of ingenuity they figure a way out of that and that makes for one hell of an ending. more applicable now than ever.
