Critic Reviews for Good Night, and Good Luck.
In terms of historical content, the film is neither quite honest nor quite true. That's a shame, because it's a great film.February 12, 2020 | Full Review…
Shorn of flash and dazzle in a way Murrow would appreciate, Good Night, and Good Luck practises what it preaches. It might be the result of wires and lights in a box, but it feels like a slice of life.September 26, 2017 | Full Review…
Provocative, principled and richly detailed, this is compelling stuff. Emotionally it(TM)s a little dry, but as brain-food, it(TM)s absolutely invigorating. George done good.February 27, 2008 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
A solid achievement.October 14, 2006 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
That it's a film both timely and timeless goes without saying. Yet Clooney is too canny a storyteller to let didacticism obscure the complexities of Murrow's character.July 1, 2006 | Full Review…
It's a modest but powerful affair, and a fantastic mood piece.June 24, 2006 | Full Review…
Audience Reviews for Good Night, and Good Luck.
Feb 16, 2016A great image and fine acting can't save the film from feeling lifeless, and at times, even turgid.Kyle M Super Reviewer
Feb 03, 2015George Clooney's "Good Night, and Good Luck." is a striking take on the cultural and political climate of the 1950s. Using aesthetic elements, strong dialogue and well-rounded performances from a star-studded cast, the film makes for a powerful depiction of society then & now. 4/5Eugene B Super Reviewer
Sep 10, 2013George Clooney uses David Strathairn to full use in this often engaging look at Edward Murrow and his role in breaking the tyranny of McCarthyism at the height of the Cold War.John B Super Reviewer
Jun 25, 2013Smart, succinct and splendidly lensed, "Good Night, and Good Luck" is more about its cast than anything. The likes of Jeff Daniels, Patricia Clarkson, George Clooney, Frank Langella, Tom McCarthy, Ray Wise and Robert Downey, Jr. offer solid support to David Strathairn, who is marvelously composed and understated in his performance.Stephen E Super Reviewer
