Good Night, And Good Luck : Movie Review


Good Night, And Good Luck (2005) - Movie PosterOne doesn’t need much more of a reason to go to the movies than this: Edward R. Murrow taking on Senator Joe McCarthy (at the height of his power), crisp black-and-white cinematography, the clink of ice cubes over scotch, voluptuous clouds of cigarette smoke hanging in the air, a nation’s conscience dangling in the balance. So it is with George Clooney’s Good Night, and Good Luck, a film where the mood just shy of too cool for its own good sets the scene for Murrow, the patron saint of journalism, to cajole and castigate the audience in a time of complacency. It also has a great jazz soundtrack.
