Critic Reviews for Nuclear Nation
Few films have opening images more chilling than the ruins of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, or more bleak than the last 10 minutes of "Nuclear Nation."
For the most part, the movie takes an eye-level approach to the disaster, focusing on the experiences of ordinary people living in makeshift shelters and public housing, lining up for food, and returning to their homes in hazmat suits.
[Funahashi's] approach is direct, intimate yet respectful, and sometimes as mournful as the stark piano-and-flute score.
If you were looking for a documentary to blow the lid off the secrecy around the extent of the destruction, and lack of restitution-in other words outrage à la Michael Moore-you will not find it here, but there is much that is worthy and troubling.
This documentary sometimes lingers on vistas better suited to a Godzilla movie, strewn with rubble, devoid of souls.
