Although George Clooney didn't win an Oscar for directing Good Night, And Good Luck, (he did win supporting actor for Syriana), the movie has been well recieved by critics and moviegoers alike. The film is set in the early 1950's when the threat of Communism created an air of paranoia in the United States. Exploiting those fears was Sen. McCarthy. However, CBS reporter Edward R. Murrow and his producer Fred W. Friendly decided to take a stand and challenge McCarthy and expose him for the fear monger he was. Also on DVD this week: A History Of Violence and The Prize Winner Of Defiance, Ohio.
