The Hospital

This blisteringly cynical satire, written by Paddy Chayefsky, is one of the darkest movies ever made, a cold-eyed lament for a society torn apart by upheavals of the Sixties. The hospital of the title is a sinkhole of moral chaos and despair, presided over by George C. Scott, a suicidal fallen-knight of a surgeon who wants to stop caring but can't. Inside the hospital, doctors and nurses are mysteriously dying; outside, the place is under siege by Black Panther-type radicals. Then leggy Brit Diana Rigg shows up, and things get really weird.
