Good Night, And Good Luck. 2005

"Good Night. And, Good Luck." takes place during the early days of broadcast journalism in 1950's America. It chronicles the real-life conflict between television newsman Edward R. Murrow and Senator Joseph McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee. With a desire to report the facts and enlighten the public, Murrow, and his dedicated staff - headed by his producer Fred Friendly and Joe Wershba in the CBS newsroom - defy corporate and sponsorship pressures to examine the lies and scaremongering tactics perpetrated by McCarthy during his communist 'witch-hunts'. A very public feud develops when the Senator responds by accusing the anchor of being a communist. In this climate of fear and reprisal, the CBS crew carries on and their tenacity will prove historic and monumental. (read more)

Good Night, And Good Luck. Movie Review by Seth (10/28/2005)

As Jon Stewart said to George Clooney on The Daily Show:

"Sir, I feel you should be less handsome."

It is true, Clooney shows some yet-unseen talents in this film that have nothing to do with his good looks or leading man talents ("I said you could fire a 'few' rounds."). The look of the film, the shots used, the style,...

Good Night, And Good Luck. Movie Review by Chris (2/9/2009)

'Good Night, and Good Luck' is superb filmmaking, marking George Clooney's second film as a director. The film is a docu-drama centered around the mid-life of CBS reporter Edward R. Murrow, and his goal to create and tell controversial stories through his own opinions and statements. Nominated for 6 Oscars, including Best...

Good Night, And Good Luck. Movie Review by Luis Pedron (7/8/2007)

Good Night and Good Luck, is a triumphant filmmaking showcase for sophomore director George Clooney. Clooney as generous as he is, he gave the main role to another fine actor David Strathairn instead of himself. This decision successfully brought to light Strathairn's ability to carry a film not by name but by might....

Good Night, And Good Luck. Movie Review by Movie Addict (3/12/2007)

I was only three when the events of the movie took place. I was enjoying my youth before starting my journey of 13 years of Catholic education with kindergarten looming on the horizon. Obviously, I wasn't aware of the Red Scare that Tailgunner Joe used to his advantage before he was brought down by Morrow and others.

Good Night, And Good Luck. Movie Review by AJ (4/14/2006)

After the excellent and underrated Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Clooney returns to the director's chair for an even better sophomore outing, Good Night, and Good Luck., a stirring, topical look at legendary 1950's newscaster Edward R. Murrow's battle against Junior Senator Joseph McCarthy. The black-and-white...
