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
Some may have thought that it was wonderfully civic minded of the Burroughs Corporation to sponsor a film about vital records storage as a component of civil defense, but when 'Bombproof' suddenly turns into an infomercial for the microfilm industry, the company's true motive becomes quite clear.
