Oh, for the days when the impending threat of nuclear annihilation was a relatively new worry. Not that Ironbark is a film meant to evoke nostalgia exactly. It’s just that given the timing, the opening credits, which present a portrait of a world just beginning to grapple with the ramifications of two rival nations possessing weapons of mass destruction, feels, well, rather quaint. It doesn’t last too long though, even if every depiction of the 1960s does carry a sentimental longing that feels unavoidable at this point, what with all that prosperity and hope.
