Into Eternity Reviews
Aside from speculation about the future which is always good nerdy fun, what "Into Eternity" does well is deliver a very subtle anti-nuclear power message, just beneath all of the debate. Onkalo is just one facility that will take 100 years to be built, just to store Finland's nuclear waste for a century. And then you have the amount of nuclear waste in the world today which is about 250,000 tons that has to be disposed of safely, so there will have to be many other sites like Onkalo which could conceivably be time bombs for people thousands of years in the future.
And if anybody is reading this in the year 100,000, I am so unbelievably sorry about "Jersey Shore." I have no idea what we were all thinking.
The film is set up as if it were being watched in the future to warn people about the dangerous waste. However it then gives you the premise that every basic science textbook, every internet article on radiation, and all of our current languages are gone. So how would anyone watch or even understand the video?
All im saying is it makes no sense... I suppose im a little biased since I thought this was a documentary on nuclear waste and it turned out to be an environmentalist film using hippie scare tactics.
