Worthwhile documentary, not at all dated.
5 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent documentary that's powerful 25 years after it was first released. Great use of archival footage. A needed stimulant to give the public reason to consider the questions of both nuclear war and power. This was very much an almost unsupported effort to produce a cogent critique of the dangers of reliance on nuclear power, production and its use in war. It was investigative reporting atypical of its era.

I particularly appreciated the use footage of an Army chaplain's assuring troops who were deliberately exposed to a nuclear explosion that it was a spiritual and uplifting experience. It was a prophetic statement about the current warmongering emanating from the "Christian" right against a quarter of the world's population.

This film is from the producer/director/editor of the very well received "Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill" that appeared more than two decades later.
