Beautiful and Low Key

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. It's a very smart movie, us... read more

Before Ben Affleck surprisingly became the hottest actor-turned-director at work nowadays, it seems at some point that George Clooney would get this prestigious title. Indeed, with this movie, he was apparenly becoming a director to reckon with in the future.

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.

"In "Good Night, and Good Luck," Edward R. Murrow (David Strathairn), Fred Friendly (George Clooney) and Joe Wershba (Robert Downey, Jr) use the method of journalism in the show “See It Now” to criticize the policies of Senator Joseph McCarthy. The studio director Sig Mickelson (Jeff Daniels) and executive William Paley (Frank Langella) are concerned because the report may bring up serious accusations in CBS, but the report becomes a major hit and Murrow’s anti-red scare battle commences.

"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"

"First viewing - Sept. 1st For reasons I can't recall anymore this film was not a priority for me at the time of its theatrical run. In the past few years I've been itching to watch it but hadn't successfully tracked it down on the occasions where I went seeking it out. Thus I was pleasantly surprised to find it on Netflix, and hopped on the chance to watch it almost immediately. I'm glad I did. It's a fascinating film, and surprisingly still relevant. The cast does an excellent job, and I liked"
