The Atomic Cafe (1982)

Jayne Loader, Kevin Rafferty and Pierce Rafferty


The Atomic Cafe recounts a defining period of 20th century history and serves as a chilling and often hilarious reminder of cold-war era paranoia in the United States, artfully presented through a collage of newsreel footage, government archives, military training films and fifties music. Inventive, sharply satiric montage of Cold War propaganda is hilarious, alarming by turns. Too repetitive for some, but cult-status film appeals to fans of black humor, social satire, offbeat documentaries.
