Paddy Chayefsky's 1976 film, Network, continues to be one of the most relevant films ever made. Today, I take a look at the notes Chayefsky made while writing the film to figure out how Network became Network.

I know I’m a year late, but your analysis of this film reminds me of the film Nightcrawler. Nightcrawler is the center of the news but more psychological and thrilling in my case. I didn’t do an analysis of the film.

Don't want to bring the comments section for this down to gutter-level, but there's something memorable (at least *I* remember it) about Max and Diana's love scene when even at and during her sexual climax, Diana can't stop talking about television. This was such a powerful scene, indicating borderline career obsession, that I'm surprised it hasn't been ripped-off more often. Say what you like about Chayefsky (ahem, Altered, ahem, States), but he certainly pushes the envelope of originality.

I honestly feel that this film isn’t discussed as much as other classics because the truth hurts

If one were to marry a woman like Diana Christenson, it would be a disaster if someone like that would have children.

Its a good movie but its hard to digest, its way too technical and filled with jargon. Not a kind of movie for a repeat.

This movie should be remade with New World Order and 911 conspiracy. Forget the romance. Who has the balls to make that movie? No one thats who.

This film shows how television 📺 runs people lives without them even knowing it and it’s still going on in today’s time 🤔 That why this Film will never be remade Wake Up Sheeple!!!!!! Television & Social Media is the greatest Brainwashing Tool on this Generation and a Generation Too Come.

I really really really loved this presentation of a writer's process. It's super helpful. Can you do more videos that focus on the behind the scenes process rather than the way the final result looked?

It's now worse than what is portrayed in Network. Citizens have been conditioned into believing everything spewed out by their favorite politicians and news media while rejecting without consideration all opposing opinions because they have been manipulated into credulously accepting the propaganda of the party-centric nationalism.

I thought the Max-Diana relationship was a weak link in the film. What does Max, a guy on the way out, have to offer Diana? Network is a very good movie, but this relationship subplot was its weak link.

You should totally do an episode about COWBOY BEBOP, now that you've seen it. I think the characters are very well written, and would love to see some analysis.

I love the film as it contains some of the best homegrown American rhetoric - 'I'm as mad as hell and I am not going to take this anymore' 'Do you think the Soviet Politburo sits around talking of Lenin, Marx and Revolution? No they sit and discuss the price of gold and oil on the world market'

so if the Network is satire, stretched as it may be, Anchorman could be tied as a satire of the Network. far-fetched? not as far as you think

Never thought of this before, but this makes me think of night crawler. Another movie about sensationalized news media that people felt was too extreme or too unrealistic. Makes me wonder how that movie will look in another decade.

fragr33f Absolutely. It’s the best movie I’d never heard of. Genuinely a masterpiece that doesn’t get talked about nearly as much as others. Made in 1976!

There a need for more videos about Network right now (and more people need to know about it), as it's mindblowing how prescient it was, and how accurately it descibes the current times. I assume everyone commenting here has seen it, and if so, show it to two people you know who haven't (and then have them do the same).

When writing I’ve frequently had a lot of that same kind of conflict trying to figure out what the hell it is I’m making. It’s nice to see that Im not the only one questioning just about everything I’ve put to paper hehe

We're getting off the subject that the movie Network is still happening in today's time we do and act out as what the television tell us to do it's controlling a generation and a generation to come like it said it would we have the tube with us now all the time tablet's and smart phones we dress eat and act like the tube and the people we see on it just like Howard Beal said 🤔 and they always remake movies but they never remade this one I wonder why.

God I hate this fucking movie. It would make an interesting essay but it's such a dull film. Endless overly poetic, overly dramatic monologues that take forever to say what they're trying to say. The sub-text and the allegory is thought provoking but the movie is so profoundly unentertaining

I have a slight different take on the romance. What I like about Network it's shows how Max (the disillusioned cynic) is in bed with Diana. They are basically part of the same sick dynamic. Max doesn't show the alternative - a positive, empowering, uplifting, enligthened view of people and the world to counter the corrupting influences - he uses the corruption to affirm his own cynicism - he needs her. Ideologically they are more similar than different, they believe life is rotten but she chooses to embrace and exploit it, and he whines about it... you see the same dynamic play out today with Trump, ironic funny newscasters, etc.

Despite it being dated in many ways, the core ideas and social statements are more relevant today than they were in 1976. This is an absolutely brilliant film. You owe it to yourself to see it if you haven't already.

Maybe people do love him, but rarely put him alongside the best directors of all time. Sidney Lumet is probably the most underrated filmmaker of all time.

Chayevsky is right: writing is work. The writing you've never heard of is art. The writers you've heard of are not the best at what they do, but the best at gaining attention for what they do. If it happens to be good, then all the better. Excellent video. Thank you for your hard work.
