Line(s) of the Day #Network

Crazy-Howard-Beale-Peter-Finch-from-the-movie-Network.

I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore.

The definitive and oft-quoted line from the anarchistic speech by Howard Beale (Peter Finch) in Network (1976). Set in the fictional UBS network, the film tells how a unstable newsreader’s explosive ramblings are exploited for profits and ratings. The film won four Academy Awards, including Best Actor for Finch. I was also lucky enough to see a fantastic recent adaptation in the National Theatre with Bryan Cranston in the lead role.
