Movie Info

It's been 75 years this month since the start of the Atomic Age, with the U.S. nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki killing hundreds of thousands of civilians, but its trail of destruction has never ended. Dark Circle covers both the period's beginnings and its aftermath, providing a scientific primer on the catastrophic power of nuclear energy while also relating tragic human stories detailing the devastating toll radioactive toxicity has taken on people and livestock-focusing in large part on Rocky Flats, Colorado, whose plutonium processing facility infamously contaminated the surrounding area. Documentary Grand Prize winner at Sundance, Academy shortlisted for Best Documentary, and Emmy winner, Dark Circle is no less potent today than it was 40 years ago.

Critic Reviews for Dark Circle (1982)

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

Dark Circle, which is one of the most horrifying films I've seen, also sometimes is one of the funniest (if you can laugh at the same things in real life that you found amusing in Dr. Strangelove).

While not uplifting, Dark Circle engages at every turn. It's an important film ...

Engrossing filmmaking about a subject more terrifying than a Hollywood horror film.

The best case for abolishing nuclear power plants is made: without the plutonium waste, there can be no nuclear weapons.
