DIRECTOR: Frederick Wiseman
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.
ATOMIC HYGIENE: Cold War Short Films
OUR CITIES MUST FIGHT
Archer's other civil defense film ('Duck And Cover' being the more well known) is a ponderous examination of the dangers of civilians abandoning an A-bombed city. The story is presented as a dialog between two men, one of whom seems to be perpetually smoking and re-lighting a pipe, sitting in a poorly lit office.
