Best Atomic Age Drama, 31 August 2000
Author: ivan beshkov (ivanbeshkov@msn.com) from LOS ANGELES

Here is what I wrote in my 1983 diary:

A very good low-budget movie about the nuclear holocaust. People are stranded in the desert awaiting impending doom. What I liked about it is that it takes no sides, and doesn't end conventionally. The critics didn't think much of it, but I find it more effective than "Dr. Strangelove" which takes war too lightly.

Low budget suits this subject perfectly, because sparse and austere treatment is appropriate for such a momentous subject.

It puzzles me that all three writers never worked before OR SINCE. What became of them?
