I have a special place in my heart for Edward R. Murrow. I consider him a man of uncommon integrity and bravery. What his internal driving force that enabled him to do that I don't know. I don't think that I would have that kind of courage in the same circumstances. I don't necessarily face challenges well at that level.
Brilliant script. Pointed politics, but something that I agree with. Small clip of Eisenhower says a lot, and I think pushed it over the edge for me.
David Strathairn is amazing. Frank Langella is pretty amazing as well. I think it's a better movie than Crash, though it's a bit more arty than I would have expected; don't get me wrong, I like it, but it feels a little Soderbergh. Art for the sake of art, not so much to tell the story. It does have a little feeling of distancing that Murrow was known for, and it works in well with the personality of Murrow.
Interesting contrast with the terrorism-heroics of V for Vendetta.
