"Good Luck and Good Night," The latest political satire from forme E.R. actor turned director, George Clooney, is already receiving Oscar-worthy buzz for his self writen tale of Edward Murrow, a CBS evening anchor who attempted to take down Senator Joesph McCarthy in the hay day of the Red Scare. Leading the cast is vetern actor David Stratharin, a shoe in for a best actor nod in January.
The film is being called a jab by Clooney at reflecting his view of the current quagmire of media versus the government. Clooney who had been outspoken in his support for various chartable causes has come under fire from Fox Host Bill O Reilly and the two have shared hitted words over the last 3 or 4 years since 2001 when O Reilly accused the actor of mismanaging funds collected for 9/11. Clooney has also been increasingly critical of the President's performance up until a year ago when he disappeared off the public radar to create this film.
"Good Luck and Good Night" is being hailed as an artisitcally stunning film, intercutting original news footage of McCarthy against David Stratharin's performance. Clooney plays the producer who supported Murrow's in his case against McCarthy. "Good Luck and Good Night" opens today nationwide.
