I just got this movie and I got to admit I was very impressed. It wasn't like OMG this movie is the greatest but it was a smart film about about someone who stood up to the witch hunt of the 50's. I can see why it had 6 Academy awards though. I thought David Strathairn done a excellent job as the sharp newsman Ed Murrow. Georgy Clooney was also very good in this film. Did you know that Mark Cuban( NBA Dallas Mavericks owner) was one of the partners of 2929 Entertainment who helped produce this film? Anybody else like this film? It seems as I get older I am more drawn to films like this, just last night I watched V for Vendetta which is also a film showing the darker sides of government.
