GOOD NIGHT, AND GOOD LUCK. (Theatrical Release USA 2005)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì 

Good Night, and Good Luck.—the unusual and unique format for telling this story, works fabulously. David Strathairn perfectly shows the audience the character of Edward R. Murrow and what he wanted.  Look for Robert Downey Jr., Patricia Clarkson, Frank Langella, Jeff Daniels, and George Clooney as supporting cast. The movie can be easily missed because of its unassuming poster and lack of advertising, but know it is a WOW! watch because of subject matter and the way it concludes. A small criticism is that the same jazz singer is accessed repeatedly through the film. It would have been welcome to have a variety of singers for the background music.
