The movie 'Network' (1976) is an experience not unlike applying a defibrillator to side of one's head.
Out of the many epic scenes in an epic movie with epic talent on full display, the scene below stands out, at least for me, as particularly prescient... It is very intellectual. Very lucid. Very convincing. Very scary.
Besides all that, I also like it for protraying how, quite contrary to what many believe (as did I, at one point), the New World Order will overwhelm the current (seemingly) disorderly world not with suddenness and chaos -- but much like hypothermia: Pain and helplessness slowly, fuzzily transforming into the warm embrace of death.
Now watch -- and be forewarned...
