Arrow Video is delighted to announce the release of Sidney Lumet’s seminal 70s classic, Network. Featuring a powerhouse cast list including Peter Finch, Faye Dunaway, Robert Duvall, William Holden and Warren Beatty, the four times Academy Award winning film, which also won a handful on Golden Globes and BAFTAs on release, will arrive on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK from 23rd March 2015.
This new and fresh edition features an exciting array of extra features including an hour-long documentary The Directors, focussing on Sidney Lumet, alongside an all-new visual essay on the film's making, written and presented by Dave Itzkoff (author of Mad as Hell: The Making of Network and the Fateful Vision of the Angriest Man in Movies).
The reversible sleeve will showcase both the original and the newly commissioned artwork by Chris Walker and the disc will also feature a collector’s booklet with new writing on the film by Mike Sutton and an American Cinematographer article by director of photography Owen Roizman, illustrated with original stills and artwork.
Synopsis: In 1976 two of the key players in the Golden Age of Television, writer Paddy Chayefsky and director Sidney Lumet, delivered a coruscating attack – at once savage and hilarious – on the medium that made their names.
