Shocking, harrowing and hard to watch, it nonetheless made an important contribution to an increasingly urgent debate about the world's ever-growing nuclear stockpile. Full Review

Rating: 5/5 -- It's perfectly crafted, totally human and so completely harrowing you'll think that you'll probably never want to watch it again. Full Review
