'Command and Control'

On September 18th, 1980, at an Air Force base in Little Rock, Arkansas, a worker accidentally dropped a tool that almost detonated a nine-million–ton nuclear warhead with three times the power of all the weapons used in World War II. "Catastrophic" doesn't begin to describe how and why the United States almost blew itself up, but Robert Kenner's documentary, based on Eric Schlosser's terrifying book of the same time, combines Cold War-era thriller with post-apocalyptic nightmare. And given it's all true, this one will stay with you for days after viewing. JN
