The CONELRAD 100 of Atomic Films

TITLE: MISSILE

MISSILE

DIRECTOR: Frederick Wiseman
YEAR: 1987

Wiseman focuses his trademark extra long take documentary style on a class of Air Force Officers training to become Minuteman Launch Missileers. The giddy hugs and high fives of two students who just made a successful, simulated launch of their two nukes is worth the price of admission. Also, don't miss the graduation speech by an Air Force General, who is one of the Looking Glass aircraft commanders.

Yes, the future Popeye Doyle once appeared in an atomic safety film.
