A film that engages the mind and the heart in ways that few films do.

Good Night and Good Luck will make my 10-best list. It's unquestionably one of the best films of the year.

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.

By its end, "Good Night, and Good Luck" evolves into a prophetic vision of how television and film can be used to illuminate or insulate, educate or entertain.
