Critic Reviews for Atomic Mom
The director cites kooky when not creepy, symbiotic connections back then between glitzy Vegas and the nearby detonations; the giddy atomic bomb culture; and a nuclear theme park souvenir shop hawking fashion statements accessorizing for the apocalypse.
Audience Reviews for Atomic Mom
Surprisingly good doc considering the subject is the director's mother. Arranged and edited quite well. Shows how a soldier's blind faith in their orders can blind them to the moralities of their actions. Then, when reflecting on the radiation assessments she completed on animals, Mom feels guilt over the long-term effects of the WWII bombs. A touching discourse ensues between her and a Hiroshima family - mediated by the daughter/director. Whenever you find yourself in Las Vegas or Hiroshima, please visit the Atomic Bomb Museums.
