REVIEW: Good Night, and Good Luck.


George Clooney's Good Night, and Good Luck. is a terrific film and a searing indictment about the dangers of media timidity. Every performance is perfect (especially David Strathairn and Frank Langella) and the black and white is beautiful. It's a kick to see how television shows were put together in the 50's and it is hilarious how much people smoked. (Murrow even smoked on the air!) The words may be about McCarthy but the music is all about the Boy King and his fear-mongering Administration.

A must see for everyone who reads this blog since obviously you're into this kind of stuff. This movie made sitting through Domino almost worth it.
