The Cinema Rediscovered Gazette

Bristol cinema audiences channel
their inner Howard Beale

It's 40 years since anchorman Howard Beale delivered his iconic "mad as hell" outburst in Sidney Lumet’s prophetic Network.

We know how he feels. Want to scream something from the window as well? Get it off your chest and let us know what you won't take anymore of - venting will make you feel better, honest...

Howard Beale lets it all out in Network, which we're screening as part of Cinema Rediscovered.

 Foreign film-makers putting English subtitles on films. You'd think foreigners would just watch them in their own languages. Mad as hell!!

James Harrison @jamesmjharrison

 Ed Sheeran being a thing..... 

Chris

 Human pavement obstacles, blissfully ignorant and achieving a mighty three footsteps per minute. IN FRONT OF YOU. Sashay away! 

Jo Bligh @_jobligh

 How often I lose my own keys... just put them in the same place like a grown up. 

Hannah Higginson

 Donald Trump. And just, you know, the world, in a general kinda way. 

Ella

 House prices. Your tiny, damp-ridden, sunlight-devoid, depressing suburban hovel is NOT worth £280,000. Even if it is south facing. 

Tommy

 Toilets you have to pay for. The inhumanity! And that once accessed are exactly the same if not worse than every other toilet you’ve ever seen. 

Tommy

 Food in cinemas. Are you some sort of festering termite that you can't manage to sit for two frickin hours on this earth without having a meal. 

Alan

 Cash machines that charge you. You're a cash machine. Don’t CHARGE me money for the thing that you do. GIVE me money. 

Tommy

 Wages and rent prices. I work 2 jobs AND rent out a spare room on airbnb AND IT’S STILL NOT ENOUGH MONEY. 

Ella

 People who are completely unprepared for situations they KNOW are going to happen. Like morons hunting for change when boarding a bus. 

Mel

 People who push the lift button after watching you push it first. I’ve pushed it fool.
