The Hospital (1971)/Bank Shot (1974)
First, George C. Scott gives a bravura performance as a New York City surgeon struggling with his professional and private lives amidst the looniness of the inner workings of "The Hospital." Diana Rigg, Barnard Hughes, and Richard Dysart also star in this lacerating black comedy scripted by Paddy Chayefsky. Next, not the kind to just take the money and run, criminal genius Scott steals a whole bank from its foundations in "Bank Shot," the fast-paced romp based on Donald E. Westlake's novel. With Joanna Cassidy, Bob Balaban, and Sorrell Booke. 185 min. total. Soundtrack: English.
