It is hard to believe that this Opera, Dr. Atomic, was actually made. Sometimes during the film I thought it was a joke.
The film making is great and the converging timelines done very well. Just fascinating.
The director of the Opera Peter Selars is a fantastic character and when I say character that is what I mean. Very over the top and expressive - loved him - comic relief too.
The opera composer was a real pro and the actors in Dr. Atomic were very talented the opera sections of the file got a little tedious at time, probably because I don't enjoy ophra. Amazing history footage about Oppenheimer (created the Atomic Bomb), some of it never seen and just recently declassified.
This is a great movie if you live history or opera or both.
