9 August 2005 | sol-
My brief review of the film
An overly dark and rather dreary satire, it is nevertheless full of interesting ideas, and George C. Scott delivers very well as a suicidal hospital administrator even if he has a few over-the-top moments. The whole script in fact feels a bit outrageous and over-the-top, in a manner that lacks realism. However the heart of the script, like with Chayefsky's other films, such as 'Marty' and 'Network', centers around anger, and this emotion is dealt with throughout the film, with some interesting thoughts on how to cope with it, but no real answers. Anyway, The Hospital is an interesting enough watch, with a murder subplot that proves to be thought-provoking later on, even if mystifying at first. Diana Rigg is great, and even if somewhat flawed, this is good stuff.
