9. THE HOSPITAL (1971)

Director: Arthur Hiller
James Gunn says: This is a Paddy Chayefsky script, which was his follow-up to the classic Network, and in a lot of ways it’s like Network. It’s about the corruption of institutions, and a series of murders that are going on within this hospital. It stars George C. Scott in one of his greatest performances.

The Hospital is just a fantastic movie; I actually think it’s much better than Network myself, although I’m probably alone in that. It doesn’t telegraph its message as much as Network, so that makes it a better movie for me.
