The Atomic Cafe

The Atomic Cafe
1:28:00 | 1982

Categories: History, Arts and Culture

One of the defining documentaries of the 20th century, The Atomic Cafe offers a darkly humorous glimpse into mid-century America, an era rife with paranoia, anxiety, and misapprehension. Whimsical and yet razor-sharp, this timeless classic illuminates the often comic paradoxes of life in the "Atomic Age," while also exhibiting a genuine nostalgia for an earlier and more innocent nation.

that last comment where the Dad is like," ok children time for you to go clean up all the broken glass and debris, while we wait for further instructions from the authorities, all we can do is relax" (well something to that effect:) it is @ just before the end ~1:21 ya you can just see a parent saying that to their children in this day and age, and then you can imagine the response from the kids, ya right! LOL otherwise a very serious and thought provoking film.
