Threads will always make way for an annihilating viewing experience; it is unmatched in portraying the realism of nuclear war from a humanistic stand-point, especially from the endearing residents of working-class Sheffield. We follow them right through to the actual threat up until the devastating execution, the end result is harrowing.
the absolute best post apocalyptic film in terms of the raw hopelessness and destruction experienced from a human point of view. It's written well enough that you truly care for the characters and the believable sequence of events that lead to the nuclear holocaust. The last scene has resonated with me most of all, truly harrowing!
