Movies: Good Night, And Good Luck (2005)
We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason if we dig deep into our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men. Not from men who feared to write, to associate, to speak, and to defend the causes that were for the moment, unpopular. This is no time for men who oppose Sen. McCarthy’s methods to keep silent or for those who approve. We can deny our heritage and our history but we cannot escape responsibility for the result. We proclaim ourselves as indeed we are, the defenders of freedom wherever it continues to exist in the world. But we cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home. The actions of the Junior Senator from Wisconsin have caused alarm and dismay amongst our allies abroad and given considerable comfort to our enemies. And whose fault is that? Not really his, he didn’t create this situation of fear, he merely exploited it, and rather successfully. Cassius was right, the fault dear Brutus is not in our stars, but in ourselves. Good night, and good luck.
(Edward R. Murrow)
Really, Strathairn, you need to stop.
He does need to stop. But I don’t want him to stop.
You really don’t want to mess with this.

Saw The Heiress tonight and was in the third row, 10 feet away from Jessica Chastain and David Strathairn. It was an awesome show, and I got some great photos with Chastain and Dan Stevens, but David Strathairn flew outta the stage door and didn’t sign or photograph for anyone. Sad. Face. Still, an excellent experience. Definitely go if you’re in the city.
Wrote a large part of an essay last semester on this image alone.
