This week on DVD and Blu-ray: a review of Sandra Bullock‘s Oscar-winning performance in The Blind Side; Tobey Maguire and Jake Gyllenhaal star in the drama, Brothers; George Clooney plays a psychically gifted solider in the offbeat farce, Men Who Stare At Goats; plus a look at the much-praised animated film, Fantastic Mr. Fox.
Although everyone kept their cool, it was easy to imagine that a few hearts were aflutter on Friday, September 11 when George Clooney and Ewan McGregor arrived at the Toronto International Film Festival press conference for their new film, The Men Who Stare at Goats.
Good Night, and Good Luck is a fantastic movie. It is well written (by George Clooney and Grant Heslov) it is well directed (also by George Clooney) and it is exceedingly well acted (yep, Clooney is one of the co-stars as well). And not only that – this film tells a tense, emotionally charged, riveting story about a damn near forgotten part of television and American history that needs to be discussed, especially now.
