Winner of Silver Bear Award at the Berlin International Film Festival, James L. Brooks' "Broadcast News" (1987) is a thinking man's film - smart, playful, and deliciously sarcastic. It is a real eye-opener. Criterion's treatment (with a top-notch contribution by the guys at Sony Colorworks) of the film is excellent. The main characters in Richard L. Brooks' Broadcast News work for a network news bureau in Washington, D.C. They invest so much energy into their professional lives that have practically none left to properly manage their personal lives. Because of the imbalance between the two, they often feel insecure and lonely, and on rare occasions even angry.
