    Zodia, Network, All The President's Men

    It's hard hitting news this week! Journalism is on the table and boy do we have some firecracker films, this week, hosts talk about 3 sizzling films ripped from the headlines!




    Zodiac (2007) dir. David Fincher Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Chloe Sevigny
    Robert Graysmith, a cartoonist by profession, finds himself obsessively thinking about the Zodiac killer. He uses his puzzle-solving abilities to get closer to revealing the identity of the killer.

    Network (1976) dir. Sidney Lumet Starring Faye Dunaway, Peter Finch, William Holden, Ned Beatty
    Veteran news anchorman Howard Beale (Peter Finch) discovers that he's being put out to pasture, and he's none too happy about it. After threatening to shoot himself on live television, instead he launches into an angry televised rant, which turns out to be a huge ratings boost for the UBS network. This stunt allows ambitious producer Diana Christensen (Faye Dunaway) to develop even more outrageous programming, a concept that she takes to unsettling extremes.

    All The President's Men (1976) dir. Alan J Pakula Starring RObert Redford, Dustin Hoffmann
