Movie Reviews

Must see for anyone interested in the U.S. weapons program
J. Beyda | 08/28/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This film will haunt your days and nights, it is a deep inside look at the U.S. nuclear weapons program, its cost in financial and human terms, and security or lack of it is at times frightening.

Produced by a highly talented team originally aired for POV on PBS, now hard to find, but definitely worth a watch for scientists, historians, and anyone interested in the MADness of mutually assured destruction."
Great Film
Judith Turner | 12/15/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great film. I saw it years ago on television and was very moved by it. Years later, I saw "The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill," by the same director (Judy Irving). Another excellent film. I'm glad "Dark Circle" is now available on DVD. It's a classic. Informative yet emotionally wrenching."
