Good Night, and Good Luck concerns Edward R. Murrow's decision to expose the McCarthy trials and the Government's hunt for Communists as outrageous and unconstitutional. As Murrow and CBS were up against very powerful people, this was quite risky. The movie is beautiful, taking full advantage of what Black and White can do, and enjoying the stylishness of the 1950's.

Unfortunately, his follow-up would be the really underwhelming ‘Leatherheads’ and it has been a decade since we have been waiting for so... read more

A brilliant depiction of a controversial chapter of American history. Wonderful direction quick script and an excellent performance by David Strathairn. Contains tiny little flaws such as; parts of the plot are a little unclear-other than that well worth the watch.
View all Good Night, and Good Luck. reviews
In the early 1950's, the threat of Communism created an air of paranoia in the United States and exploiting those fears was Senator Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin. However, CBS reporter Edward R. Murrow and his producer Fred W. Friendly decided to take a stand and challenge McCarthy and expose him for the fear monger he was. However, their actions took a great personal toll on both men, but they stood by their convictions and helped to bring down one of the most controversial senators in American history.

"There are several things that are indelibly associated with the 1950s and one of the biggest ones was the Red Scare. With the Cold War "raging" in full alert, Americans were on constant edge and fear of anything that even hinted at the spread of Communist ideals. And taking full advantage of this fear was the anti-Communist senator from Wisconsin, Joseph McCarthy. Anyone caught with their name his "black list" as sympathizers for the way of the Red, were more's to find it hard to make a living i"
