A Face in the Crowd

Second time through on my new favorite movie of all time. Once the mesmerization at Griffith's performance was no longer overwhelming, I was able to really concentrate on the subtlty, yet tremendous power, of the film's message.

The film is "Network" meets "All the King's Men." Kazan gets a permanent free pass for his HUAC testimony by making this essential critique of demagoguery and unthinking consumption of the media and politics.

I simply must insist that every single human being see it as soon as they possibly can.

Didnt you just see this film a couple months ago?

Not that there is anything wrong with that.
