Cinema For Peace Honours Good Night, And Good Luck

George Clooney's GOOD NIGHT, AND GOOD LUCK will be honoured as the Most Valuable Movie Of The Year at today's (13FEB06) charity event Cinema For Peace.

Clooney's second project as a director, which he also wrote the script for, beat competition from Steven Spielberg's Munich, HANY ABU-ASSAD's Paradise Now, Bertrand Tavernier's HOLY LOLA as well as ALI SAMADI AHADI's and OLIVER STOLTZ' LOST CHILDREN.

The film explores the life of legendary CBS reporter Edward R Murrow, whose journalism brought down controversial US senator Joseph Mccarthy in the 1950s.

The jury agreed, "Good Night, And Good Luck exerts itself for its subject without getting entangled in pure reproduction.

"Director George Clooney doesn't only talk about the responsibility to make every decision on your own and to the best of one's knowledge. His work is an invitation to think, a subtle parable about moral courage and freedom of opinion that seems today more explosive than ever."

Cinema For Peace is run by the United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef) to coincide with the Berlin Film Festival.

Congrats to Clooney. His was a good and important subject, but while I doubt that really was last year's most important film for peace I also doubt that there were many substantial flicks to chose from. Come to think of it, despite that I'm not much of a Clooney fan, I guess it was appropriate to award it for Good Night and Good Luck.
