Pamela Powell reviews “The Man Who Was Thursday” and “Command and Control” on Reel Honest Reviews

“THE MAN WHO WAS THURSDAY”

“The Man Who Was Thursday” is based on the book of the same name by G.K. Chesterton in 1908.  Balazs Juszt has recreated this chilling psychological thriller, directing his stars, Francois Arnaud (Father Smith) , Ana Ularu (Saturday), and Jordi Molla (Charles) to give us the classic Good vs. Evil scenario, but with unusual and unexpected twists that will keep you guessing until the bitterly shocking end.

“COMMAND AND CONTROL”

When does a documentary about nuclear arms feel like a full-length fictional feature film?  The answer:  When Robert Kenner (“Merchants of Doubt”) and Eric Schlosser (“Fast Food Nation” “Food, Inc.”) are in the control center of filmmaking.  Their newest documentary tackles the topic of nuclear armaments and accidents in a gripping narrative form, re-creating the true story of  a devastating explosion in Arkansas in 1980.  Using interviews from those whose job it was to trouble-shoot and solve problems in the silo where the missile was stored and former military personnel who were directly involved in dealing with a potential nuclear blast on our soil to real footage and incredible reinactments of the day, we not only educate ourselves about the bombs waiting to accidentally explode, we experience the day as if we were there.
