Countdown to Zero (2010)

Director: Lucy Walker. 91 min. Rated PG. Documentary.

Like An Inconvenient Truth, this is a documentary you owe yourself to see. This incredibly discomforting film shows how many times by "accident", "miscalculation" or "madness", during the past 20 years we almost met total nuclear annihilation. Which leads the viewer to one conclusion: the need for complete nuclear disarmament throughout the world. But as opposed to An Inconvenient Truth, the solutions offered at the end are not feasible by the common man. After all, what can I do about it? Other than raising awareness, which this film does quite well.
