Night Owl

Good Night And Good Luck

Viewed: 8 March 2006
Directed by: George Clooney
Listed in: Movies, Cinema

Full of high contrast and swagger, scotch and cigarettes. It's like Clooney just wanted to show the best parts of the 1950's newsroom and ignored the rest (well everything but McCarthy). Short and concise it runs slightly longer then the three or four episodes of See It Now that are profiled. It smartly focuses on the Kinescopes from the original broadcasts and it doesn't stray from the main story. Edward R Murrow and crew is never even seen in daylight. A excellent example of how stories like this ought to be told.
