Good Night And Good Luck

One of the best movies in the last ten years, and George Clooney’s best film he’s ever been involved in. It deals with Edward Murrow, a journalist during the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s who had a long, and very public fight of words with Senator Joseph McCarthy, that insane whack-job who accused everyone falsely of being a Communist. This is the kind of movie that is all-dialogue and little action, but what makes it succesful is the power and talent of the actors involved. I’d never heard of David Strathairn but recognized him from many, many films in the past like Return Of The Secaucus 7 and LA Confidential, but he owns the film. Without even emoting, you feel every emotion that goes throughout his body, from his anger and nerves to his happy moments, smoking all the time and kicking ass verbally. The rest of the cast is great as well, with Robert Downey Jr., Jeff Daniels, Patricia Clarkson, Frank Langella, and Clooney himself. Ray Wise from Twin Peaks also shows up as the sad Don Hollenbeck, a reporter who killed himself after being classified as a Communist. In the end, this is very recommended and it’s one of the best films ever made. Watch it!
