Film review: Pandora's Promise - should we stop worrying and love nuclear energy?
Robert Stone, 87 mins (12A)
Pandora's Promise is a very disconcerting environmental documentary.
The director, Robert Stone, enlists a number of earnest, articulate and even charismatic talking heads who tell us that it's time we learned to stop worrying and love nuclear energy.
In spite of Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Chernobyl and Fukushima, they still make the argument that using nuclear energy is better for the long-term health of the planet than fossil fuels.
They're very persuasive, too, even if their claims imply that the anti-nuclear energy lobby is either duplicitous or monstrously deluded.
