This movie rates high on the scale of hard to watch...And it's not only that the United States dropped bombs and experimented on humans, it's the racism that stood out for me. Somewhere in the film the term "savage" is used in a US government film. These people in the Pacific Island did not have our fancy clothes and technology and war making machines...they were dark skinned...they didn't matter as much : they were 'savages'. The arrogance of the US is evident and unmistakable. Our pride in developing the bomb and ending a war and showing how powerful we were was apparent. And as WWII came to a close I imagine the mood of the people was quite different than it is now. One can debate whether or not the wind changed directions on the day of the Bravo test and whether or not the US planned to study those exposed to intentional radiation, but the harm done is not debatable and the debt we owe to these people is large. Whether or not the government can own up to its mistakes is yet to be seen. Until we do and until we pay some reparations, we are likely to continue committing such atrocities and denying them until the truth comes out in the distant future. I think it takes a wise and strong nation to admit a mistake. Are we up to the challenge?
