Dr. Victoria Sturtevant: "I'm Mad as Hell and I'm Not Going to Take it Anymore"

On this week’s episode, our own resident movie expert, Michael Huber, interviews his former professor, Dr. Victoria Sturtevant, of the University of Oklahoma. Professor Sturtevant teaches courses on film history, theory and criticism.
After the Mental Health Download released an episode about how “The Joker” stigmatized mental illness, Michael asked Dr. Sturtevant to discuss the portrayal of mental illness and suicide in cinema. As a jumping-off point for their wide-ranging discussion, they start with the 1976 film, “Network,” which was a key inspiration for “The Joker.”
The classic film was honored with four major Academy Awards, including best actor and best actress.
It is best known for its famous line, "I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!"
