TITLE: MULHOLLAND FALLS
DIRECTOR: Lee Tamahori
This film uses the CHINATOWN noir template and inserts radioactivity in place of water and John Malkovich in place of John Huston. The movie features a very impressive shot of Nick Nolte's "hat squad" of L.A. detectives surveying a crater produced by an atomic test.
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.
