Observer II

Best WW3 movie ?

Recommended Posts

What's your favourite "nuke" movie ?   Perhaps number one would be Peter Sellars playing three parts in that dark comedy , a close number two for me, would be Gregory Peck in "the Beach"(?).  Wonder why the kids of those days didn't all finish up with mental issues ?     😉

Doctor Strangelove, or how I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb. A classic.

Who says I don't have mental issues? 😱

The Day After..

This was about the best(if thats how to describe the end of civilisation) that I remember. 

 

 

There was was also Threads set in Sheffield.

If I think ; it was banned for a while as it may have caused to much fear in the country at that time.Due to Greenham Common and other similar issues of the day.

I never really took to this film even though at the time it was big.

I always thought it trivialised the whole subject

And was more of a platform for Peter Sellers to show himself as the versatile actor he purported to be.

I watched most of these on my NBC course; but there was one shown on BBC about a terrorist biological attack,  which mirrored our current plight; with the exception of red crosses being painted on the doors of those infected.     😷

It was a black comedy Latch, so looking to satirise the political situation at the time rather than trivialise it.
