Critic Reviews for Television Event

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (1)

  • The issue with "Television Event"... is what's not there: a shred of commentary that isn't pimping for the movie, that might provide a larger cultural context for it or even (God forbid) look a bit askance at what "The Day After" "achieved."

    November 15, 2020 | Full Review…
  • In 1983, most Americans expected a nuclear war to take place within the next 10 years. Daniels' sharp film never loses sight of that sense of urgency.

    November 11, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It is a wild ride to be sure, and Daniels has had it in his head one way or another since he was a very young kid.

    December 29, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The documentary begins superbly with the dramatic behind the scenes maneuvering needed to get ABC to put on a grim four-hour miniseries about a nuclear war...

    December 29, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Television Event gives appropriate reverence to its place in history and offers today's audiences a reminder of what mass-culture is capable of.

    December 28, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The strongest companion, though, would be to just watch The Day After. Television Event qualifies as a solid documentary, but ultimately there is no topping its subject...
