Atomic Cafe


MV5BMjEyNzY5NjMzMF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwODM5ODkxMQ@@._V1._SY317_CR2,0,214,317_The documentary begins with The Trinity Test. Great footage of the Gadget and the explosion. The interview with Paul Tibbets, the pilot of the Enola Gay, is footage of interviews I had never seen before. Having watched dozens of documentaries on this subject I have seen roughly that many clips with Tibbets and it is usually the bits of the same few minutes of footage.

There is a lot of great footage throughout the film. The interviews with the rest of the flight team of the Enola Gay was the first I’d seen also. Some of what was shown would have caused court marshals had it been aired 50 years ago. The footage of the damage done to both Hiroshima and Nagasaki is disturbing and being shown while Tibbits is speaking in the background makes an impact.

From there it goes into the communist scare that paralyzed America after WWII and has great radio and television broadcasts covering the testing of Atomic and Hydrogen bomb tests done in Bikini Atoll in the 50′s.

There is a focus on the propaganda used to convince the public of the rightousness and necessity of these bombs.

I was informed, appalled, ashamed, sickened and angry after watching this documentary, which is not a bad thing.

I give it 5 stars.

Available on Netflix.
