The lessons of this story applies today as much as they did then.
I think I may have found the best movie of 2005. It's called "Good Night, and Good Luck," and luck is smiling on this movie. It took place between the years 1953 and 1954 when a show called "See It Now," plans a show on Joseph McCarthy's war on communism in Washington. A newsman named Edward R. Murrow, challenged the US Senator on the way he handle the hunt for communists in the Army. The film is shot in Black and White to get the feeling for the film, since television in the 1950's is in Black and White. David Strathaim gave a powerful performance as Edward R. Murrow, which I hope will be remembered at Oscar time. Matter of fact, I hope that this film gets a Oscar nomination for best picture. This is a powerful movie which captured the mood of the 1950's and the fear of McCarthy and his anti-communist crusades. I learned about the communist witch hunts in high school. This movie should be shown in History classes to remind students of the dark times. Sadly, today very few people had learned the lessons from Joseph McCarthy's witch hunts. And thank goodness that a film has come along at the right time. This is a must-see movie at the highest level. A important history lesson that all must see. This is the strongest contender for best film of 2005, and I'll say it again. The film is "Good Night, and Good Luck."
