Rare (very rare) showing of The Hospital (1971) tonight.


Recommended Posts

George C. Scott in his full form, disillusioned, self-pitying, idealistic, vulnerable, hard-headed and clear-sighted.  Maybe it's not his best performance (though right now I can't think of any better) but I guess it's my second favorite.  It's certainly Diana Rigg's best role in a movie.  

What's in the movie?  Nothing much, take-over by protesting mob, death by medical mistake, professional misconduct, staff sex in hospital rooms, serial killer at large, usual stuff.  Amidst all, meditation over how to live your life, what to turn your back on, what to face, who's guilty of what.  Does the movie cop-out in the end?  Yes it does, and no it doesn't.  Problem is, one person can only do one thing, so sticking to one thing means you don't to another.  Somebody said something about that once. . . .


The Hospital (1971), tonight 8 p. m., Pacific Time.
