Mark: "I've never seen Network. Is it as good as The King of Comedy?"

I think so, though a different brand of satire. Definitely worth checking out. It's uncannily relevant in a number of ways (especially todayís 24/7 news business) as well as this specific conversation.

I almost never see a film twice (though I should) and itís been a while since I saw it but remember it at the time as being essential to understanding the quagmire we were headed towards (and are now mired in). I donít know how well it holds up with time, but that one scene certainly could have been filmed today. Iíve always liked Faye Dunaway, too. (And she has one of the all-time great monikers in entertainment.) Peter Finch too, is a great actor and good in this film.
