Good Night, and Good Luck

Rated PG 90 minutes 2005

A riveting movie, as entertaining as it is socially and politically relevant, George Clooney's sophomore directorial effort (after Confessions of a Dangerous Mind) is more than just the right movie at the right time; it's a feat of dynamic filmmaking. Brilliantly conceived, visually arresting, beautifully acted, emotionally engaging, and intellectually stimulating, it chronicles the real-life conflict between Edward R. Murrow, the host of the popular CBS news program See It Now, and Senator Joseph McCarthy, who employed fear, intimidation, and outright falsehoods in a crusade to root out alleged Communists from every walk of American life. The film is shot in stunning black and white, partially as a result of the inspired decision to use actual archival footage of the key historical figures, including McCarthy himself. In a uniformly fine cast, David Strathairn is outstanding as Murrow.
