I am out of bounds and I know it but the title ‘Broadcast News’ coincides with one of my favorite movies so I am going with that.

Wonderful writing and three future movie stars; Future Oscar winners Holly Hunter and William Hurt and Albert Brooks (Oscar nominee for Broadcast News.)

Released in 1987 it still holds up well today.

I have a number of movies I have watched multiple times and Broadcast News is one of them, in fact it is on my list to re-watch sometime this month.

  1. Thanx for the film tip Kevin, like so many films I’m sure I saw it but have little memory, will try to watch it again!

    Last nite I saw Nasty Love, an Italian film based on an Elena Ferante’s novel – very good!

  2. As a friend of my parents was fond of saying at times, Your piece, Kevin was “mercifully short.” I look forward to hearing your longer and deeper reflections soon. But “short” Driscoll is better than no Driscoll.

  3. Laurie Levy says:

    And of course, we are all mad as hell these days. Great movie!

  4. Khati Hendry says:

    Never saw Broadcast News, but sounds like a good recommendation. The recent “Don’t look up” on Netflix had some commentary on current day broadcasting too, not complimentary.

  5. Betsy Pfau says:

    Excellent movie, Kevin. I particularly loved it when Holly Hunter had a mini-nervous breakdown each day, crying into her Kleenex, then would compose herself and go right back at it! The three of them did excellent work and it propeled them on to even greater stardom.
