A solid achievement.
July 1, 2006
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.
June 24, 2006
It's a modest but powerful affair, and a fantastic mood piece.
February 18, 2006
It is all outstandingly performed and photographed.

A clever, quietly spoken little movie and a great pleasure to watch.

... it telescopes -- with no loss of accuracy -- Murrow's last few fifties hurrahs as the hardest diamond in Bill Paley's 'Tiffany network.'
October 29, 2005
It's an interesting way to represent the past, though the use of space, actors, and archival footage seems more theatrical than cinematic.
October 29, 2005
Rarely moving a facial muscle except to exhale smoke and brimstone, Strathairn wonderfully recaptures Murrow's deadpan delivery style.
October 28, 2005
Clooney continues to improve as both a writer and director, showing huge advancement from his underwhelming 2002 helming debut Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.
October 28, 2005
Good Night, and Good Luck may be simplified history, but it's almost consistently well-crafted.
October 21, 2005
The best film of the year. More important, it's one of the most patriotic movies ever made.
October 21, 2005
The bottom line on Good Night, and Good Luck? See it. Now.
October 21, 2005
Clooney's message is clear: Character assassination is wrong, McCarthy was a bully and a liar, and we must be vigilant when the emperor has no clothes and wraps himself in the flag.

Mr. Strathairn does capture much of Murrow's formal manner, particularly the measured cadences of his sentences.
October 20, 2005
A sleek broadcast journalism procedural.
October 14, 2005
Clooney makes an elegant argument that something of vital interest is still at stake in this story. It would take a stubborn soul to disagree.
October 14, 2005
Good Night, and Good Luck stands, tall, solid, impressive and expressive joining not only the best films about journalism, but also those about real Americans.
October 14, 2005
The sad conclusion of Good Night is that while we have made no more room for Murrows in this world, the potential for McCarthys lingers. In which case, good luck indeed.
October 14, 2005
As an actor, George Clooney is often compared with vintage stars like Cary Grant, but with his latest work he aligns himself with history's great directors.
October 14, 2005
There's no sense of nostalgia to the picture, no wistful romanticism or longing. Instead, the movie has a steely, dead-serious vitality -- a sense of immediacy and urgency that makes it seem it could be happening right now.
