"I want you to get up, go to the window, and yell, I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!"
A struggling network television station merges its news division with its entertainment division and fires longtime anchorman Howard Beale. Beale in turn, goes completely fucking crazy and starts telling the truth about the decline of western civilization to the American people only to be quickly rehired as a television prophet on "the Howard Beale show."
Winner of 4 Academy Awards, this scathing satire skewers the ascendancy of the corporate-media-matrix decades before the likes of AOL-Time-Warner and Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. Themes include the god-like power of television, infotainment, and the corporate co-optation of rebellion.
