  • Summary: This documentary tells a story of international intrigue that reveals how leading black market suppliers of nuclear weapons technology had their roots in the Third Reich.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 5 out of 8

  1. The documentary makes an effective and rather chilling case that there is an almost unbroken chain between Adolf Hitler and Saddam Hussein.
  2. Enlightening and rather unsettling documentary.
  3. Timely, chilling, and grimly instructive.
  4. 63
    Most troubling is just how easy it is to sell nuclear secrets with the help of large corporations and the acquiescence of governments.
  5. Reviewed by: Ronnie Scheib

    Sometimes wavers, but its stylistic unevenness is trumped by its topicality.
  6. Reviewed by: Jon Dolan

    Placing blame sorta misses the point in a world of matrixed self-interest where all is equally just and unjust.
  7. 50
    The material is disparate and wide ranging, and it is often difficult to follow Mr. Friedman and Mr. Nadler down all the side streets and back alleys of their investigation.
