Criterion Edition of “Broadcast News”


4 of 5 stars
What’s this?

This 1987 James L. Brooks comedy is one of my favorite films of all time, and certainly one of the best movies about the news business ever made. It has a pitch perfect script loaded with hilarious, smart and memorable lines, not to mention three exceedingly fine performances from Holly Hunter, Albert Brooks and William Hurt. Criterion’s new, extras-laded, director-supervised restoration arrives on Blu-Ray and DVD in January (it would’ve surely been on my holiday list this year if it had been released this fall).
