Broadcast News just received the Criterion Collection Blu-ray treatment, and was accordingly re-released on DVD last week. The film follows three television news journalists played by Holly Hunter, William Hurt, and Albert Brooks. Hunter is a hot shot journalist who likes focusing on her career, but looks for sexual confirmation when it comes to being a woman. Hurt plays as her serpent, appreciating her womanly allure, but willing to destroy her ethical standards. Brooks, who is also in love with Hunter, can see past Hurt’s charm and knows what he truly represents, the biased pandering of news media.
