Everyone's talking about the trailer for Good Night and Good Luck, Georger Clooney's upcoming feature about Edward R. Murrow's battle with Joseph McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee. And with good reason – it looks fairly fantastic. As we rapidly get more and more accustomed to living in a world where various political figures have their fingers clenched deep in the neck of the media, it becomes easy to forget that such a series of events – in which TV journalists essentially brought down one of the most powerdul men in congress – actually happened. Clooney doesn't seem to be pulling any punches; about a third of the way through the trailer, the words appeared on the screen,"In a country terrorized by its government", and my eyes sort of sprung wide open. The summer movie season is officially over.
