Forgotten Bomb is Riveting!
29 June 2011 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Loved the film, and couldn't stop watching. Overbey and Ryan do a masterful job of providing a new perspective on nuclear issues and in setting the record straight. I was on the fence before watching The Forgotten Bomb, but it has made me rethink things. Particularly fascinating are experts interviewed. Insightful interviews are conducted with a whole host of credible sources including George Schultz. Addtionally, I found that I held many beliefs based on old information or rooted in conventional wisdom. The film carefully probes these typically "American" views and peels back the misconceptions to reveal the real facts. Whether you are a fan of documentaries or not, you will enjoy this film. The filmmakers stay true to the issue and the subject matter without redirecting focus on themselves.
