One of the most suspenseful films ever made.
7 February 2000 | by (Phoenix, Arizona) – See all my reviews

Jon Else's documentary, The Day After Trinity, is about the life of J. Robert Oppenheimer, a genius who helped develop the atomic bomb and whose life ended in criticism by Joseph McCarthy. The film also documents the establishment of Los Alamos and the length of time that led up to the Trinity test along with interviews of the people who worked with Oppenheimer. It is the best document involving nuclear weapons that I have seen and I highly recommend it to those would like to know more about the people who assisted on the world's most dangerous weapon. The actual footage of the hoisting of the bomb is excellent.
