The Atom Strikes - Trinity, Hiroshima, and Nagasaki



This rather sterile treatment of the bombings shows a great deal of physical damage to infrastructure, while totally ignoring the harm to humans there. Still, it manages to be quite disturbing after a while as much because the matter is never addressed. The city is just empty looking. The now famous human shadow is shown, but the tone almost implies that person is still alive somewhere, instead of vaporized.
