On it's 20-year anniversary and not a moment too soon THE ATOMIC CAFE is back to provide US with a much-needed release of comic energy. A dark comedy in the truest sense this timeless classic took the nation by storm when it first debuted in 1982. The film recounts a defining period of 20th century history and serves as a chilling and often hilarious reminder of cold-war era paranoia in the United States-artfully presented through a collage of newsreel footage government archives military training films and fifties music. Profoundly shocking and perversely topical THE ATOMIC CAFE craftily captures a panicked nation offering a fascinating and witty account of life during the atomic age and resulting cold war when fall-out shelters duck-and-cover drills and government propaganda were all a part of our social consciousness. Regarded by critics as "a nuclear Reefer Madness" and likened to Stanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove this profoundly shocking and highly amusing film is a stunner a gripping account of an unforgettable era and an indisputable "must-see" for all Americans. DVD Features: Interactive Menus; Scene Selection.
