Broadcast News ★★★★★

92

If anything, the ending of Broadcast News is too tidy, suggesting that the sardonic flavor of the love triangle would fade, nice and neatly, rather than burrow into a lost cause for all three characters. Not that it matters much, because the majority of this film is hot dynamite, with one of the greatest screenplays ever written - each line carrying the romantic connections from point to point, bursting with energy, always pushing forward with purpose - and three all-timer performances. Watching Holly Hunter, Albert Brooks, and William Hurt in their prime is to observe master magicians at the peak of their craft.
