While this movie has been criticized as a product of Lancaster's political ideology, it is too entertaining to dismiss as a simple political polemic. Gen-Xers may not remember a time when we were always just a few minutes away from a nuclear launch. This film captures some of that tension (and explains why the Strategic Air Command insisted in psychatric screening of all personnel who had access to nuclear weapons!) A plot device about the secret origins of the Vietnam war has been roundly criticized by some. But anyone who has read the early works of Henry Kissinger or the Pentagon Papers will not find it far-fetched at all. Great end title score!
