The Day After Trinity

  • Film

Time Out says

Los Alamos, 1941. A boom town (literally) where some of the best and brightest minds of the age, summoned by J Robert Oppenheimer, fabricated America's first atomic bomb. In this documentary they recall how the initial win-the-war fervour, and euphoria that their contraption actually worked, faded fast when they realised they'd replaced one Final Solution with another. Awe-inspiring footage of the Bomb in action, though the film's tiresome obsession with moral anguish and reliance on anecdote, sometimes revealing but often rambling, makes the film less than explosive.
