Ratings & Reviews

  1. Levi Miah's rating of the film Atomic: Living in Dread and Promise

    The repeated footage starts to bog it down in the second half, but the overall structure and its combination of visuals and soundtrack sets an entrancing, atmospheric tone.

  2. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film Atomic: Living in Dread and Promise

  3. El Biffo's rating of the film Atomic: Living in Dread and Promise

    Anti-nuclear war short film made of old film clips (what Mark Cousins does, docs made up of old film clips) but this time without narration. The pictures tell the story. He saves the best for last, a clip from The War Game by Peter Watkins.

  4. Jorge Mourinha's rating of the film Atomic: Living in Dread and Promise

  5. Eingya's rating of the film Atomic: Living in Dread and Promise

    Mark Cousins really understand cinema. Using only old footage and a beautiful soundtrack by Mogwai he manages to craft an engaging piece of documentarism, tracing the history of atomic technology not through words, but through emotions.
