GOOD NIGHT, AND GOOD LUCK. (2005) – AFI Movie Club

Directed, co-written and produced by star – and AFI Life Achievement Award honoree – George Clooney, GOOD NIGHT, AND GOOD LUCK. (2005) features stunning black and white cinematography by AFI Alum Robert Elswit (AFI Class of 1977). The film was honored with an AFI AWARD in 2005, recognizing it as one of the year’s most outstanding achievements in the art of the moving image. According to the official rationale, “GOOD NIGHT, AND GOOD LUCK. is a refreshingly spare reflection on a controversial and difficult time in the 1950s and, at the same time, an explosive examination of the current American news landscape. Brilliantly choreographed and co-written by director George Clooney, the film illuminates the burden of courage in a free press at odds with both its government and its corporate parent. Clooney’s ingenious use of archival footage adds to the great sense of fear and incredulity that these events took place in America. The film’s greatest contribution may be to remind audiences that ‘Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.’”
