Edward R. Murrow

Saw Good Night, and Good Luck. today. I have an Edward R. Murrow documentary set up next in my Netflix queue and I wanted to see the new movie first. It’s a demure period piece, shot black-and-white, and capturing more smoke on film than the combined efforts of Cheech, Chong, et al. What little music there is in the movie is wonderful. It’s a quiet movie that uses music only between scenes. I will be looking for the soundtrack. While the subject matter is riveting, the movie fails to be compelling drama. I hope the documentary will be more engaging.
