Good Night And Good Luck

Strathairn and Murrow

We went to see Good Night and Good Luck (A+) today.  It was really, really good.  In the movie David Strathairn (left in picture) plays Edward R. Murrow (on the right) in the 1950s.  It is shot in black and white and looks absolutely real.  The Murrow character makes speeches I wish our politicians had the courage to make today.  The movie addresses the use of Fear by politicians.  The movie is talking about Murrow's fight with McCarthy in the '50s, but the Murrow speeches could be said today and apply just as well.

Go See It.

Here is the NY Times review.
