Can you name the 1976 film that this phrase comes from? That’s right, it’s Network. Last night I watched the movie again and today went to YouTube and sure enough, you can watch the best scenes on line.
I’m certainly not in the top one percent of the wage earners, so that makes me a part of the 99%. I’m not occupying anything at the moment, but I do find myself wondering, where’s it’s all going? Maybe nowhere. Links to my 2 favorite scenes from Network are posted below. All the stuff that Peter Finch is mad as hell about are the same things that are plaguing us today, the same things we’re all mad as hell about today, 35 years later. And then the speech that spews forth from Ned Beatty to Peter Finch is AMAZING.
“I’m Mad as Hell…”
“You have meddled with the primal forces of nature Mr. Beale…”
After watching Ned Beatty’s … “primal forces of nature speech,” I’m thinking the Occupiers are going to need a bigger boat.
