It was not the last bomb, after all
28 July 2008 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

The documentary is technically superb, apart from some rather boring repetitive air combat scenes (irrespective real people was being shot in the making), for everyone in the right side, from General LeMay to the least Chamorro folk strolling down some Guam street appears acting. The funny thing is that there is no face for the enemy.

We never see what happens when the napalm hits the wooden houses many feet below. We don't see the face of the victims.

One can naturally argue 'The Last Bomb' is a paradigmatic WWII propaganda movie, aimed to insufflate enthusiasm into every American heart. But even then, it's hard to believe the average spectator not having the least curiosity on the fate of the people in the wrong side of the film.

'The Last Bomb' is an interesting product, not only showing the massive destruction chain production American approach, but the sociology (maybe pathology) of a crazy age.

But... what was happening in the wrong side of this documentary, under the shinny armored bellies of the B-17 bombers? Take a look at 火垂るの墓, Hotaru no Haka, Grave of the fireflies, and find out.
