Product Description

Amazon.ca

Without force-feeding its timely message, Good Night, and Good Luck illuminates history to enlighten our present, when the need for a free and independent press is more important than ever. In 90 breathtaking minutes of efficient and intricate storytelling, writer-director George Clooney and cowriter Grant Heslov pay honorable tribute to the journalistic integrity of legendary CBS newscaster Edward R. Murrow, who confronted the virulent and overzealous anti-Communist witch-hunting of Wisconsin Sen. Joseph McCarthy in 1953-54, and emerged as a triumphant truth-seeker against the abuses of corporate and governmental power. As played by David Strathairn, Murrow is a dogged realist, keenly aware of the smear tactics that will be employed against him; Clooney provides crucial backup as Murrow's "See It Now" producer and closest confidante Fred Friendly, forming a fierce but not entirely fearless triumvirate of broadcasting bravery with CBS chief William Paley (Frank Langella), who anxiously champions Murrow's cause under constant threat of reprisals. While using crisp black-and-white cinematography (by Robert Elswit) to vividly recreate the electrifying atmosphere of the CBS newsroom and the early years of television, Clooney (son of long-time Cincinnati newsman Nick Clooney) proves his directorial skill by juggling big themes and an esteemed ensemble cast, never stooping to simplification of ethically complex material. Good Night, and Good Luck is an instant classic, destined for all the accolades it so richly deserves. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Format: DVD
This movie was simply amazing. I found it to be extemely well made. The cinematography was just unbelievable, as was the soundtrack, which fit perfectly with the feel of the black-and-white film.* And the acting is some of the best that I have ever seen. I would definately put this movie in my TOP 5.

*For all those out there who say they hate the idea of watching a black-and-white movie, please, have an open mind. This movie would not have been as good if it wasn't filmed in classic black-and-white.

I remember watching the Macarthy hearings on our black and white TV back in the early fifties - I was just a kid at the time - As got older I watche Edward R. Murrow on his nightly TV show. - I use to watch Walter Winchel - He always wore a had and would tap on a telegraph key all the time between comments.

No car chases, boobs shaking or a sullen "hero" waving a gun around. That's right, you've got to use your head here... God forbid!
This incredible movie is about friendship, honor, dignity and simply doing the right thing. Standing up to oppression and winning.
The tempo is spot on, the writing is clever, the directing is perfect and being filmed in black and white is appropriate. But one thing
about this film towers over everything else... the acting. Everyone is well cast and gives "Oscar" worthy performances, especially
David Strathairn (nominated for Best Actor and surprisingly lost to Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote) in 2005)
