Apart from being a better movie with a similar theme, Dr. Strangelove (1964) clearly had the future zeitgeist down pat in a way that On the Beach clearly doesn’t, but paradoxically this makes the Kramer film far more useful as a time capsule. What I still find affecting about this film in spite of everything is the everyday manner in which characters move in and out of denial about their upcoming and inevitable extinction.

Although he understandably gives in to temptation on occasion (the final onscreen message being particularly overwrought), Kramer doesn’t overdo the anti-nuclear soapboxing, preferring to let wordless scenes of a radiation-suited sailor exploring a wholly deserted San Diego make his point for him.
