Threads first aired on BBC2 on 23 September, 1984, and had much the same - albeit vicarious - impact of instant and lasting trauma on its millions of viewers (6.9 million, to be precise) as a megatonne bomb hitting a major city. Full Review

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: 4/5 -- An over exaggeration in order to compare today to the days of the Cold War? Most certainly. But a sheet of ice on grey pavement would be a fitting metaphor for Threads, a movie that revels in its simplicity. Full Review
Flickering Myth
Apr 17, 2019
Rating: 5/5 -- Threads is most successful by its merciless refusal of sentimentality - every second is played for realism; this is a documentary of a nightmare, as we are taken, via a young unmarried couple, through a nuclear strike on Sheffield circa 1984, and beyond. Full Review

For all its grim hopelessness, Threads had a subtextual faith that people would understand all this before it was too late. Full Review

[S]eared a black furrow across my soul as a teen that has never healed... it still plagues the dim recesses of my imagination.

It's the accumulation of horrific detail that appalls and truly scares us - not just the putrefying bodies but the severing of civilization's entire network, modern man trapped in modernity's ashes. Full Review
