Absolutely one of the best based on real life movies. If this flick doesn't make you think, you must be brain dead!

If you've never seen this movie, you've in for a treat. This is the story how the country built the first atomic bombs during WWII. Paul Newman (can't ever go wrong there!) plays the military man who keeps Los Alamos going. Of course, Robert Oppenheimer was the lead scientist and he often disagreed with Newman's character over how to keep the scientists happy and productive. There's, of course, a scene where they set of the first bomb - it really catches your breath. Oppenheimer makes a statement at the time that we ""Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." One really fabulous movie that really makes you think!
