Abstract:

MISSILE follows the 4315th Training Squadron of the Strategic Air Command at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, where Air Force officers are trained to man the Launch Control Centers for the Minuteman Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles.. Sequences include discussion of the moral and military issues of nuclear war; the arming, targeting and launching of the missile; codes; communications; protection against terrorist attack; emergency procedures; staff meetings and tutorial sessions.. "Wiseman ... has given a fair and hard look into the 20th century's most horrifying institution, one that should occasion serious reflection by hawks and doves alike"--Duane Byrge, The Hollywood Reporter." ... What makes MISSILE so unnerving [is that] it brings home that nuclear war could really happen. Wiseman continues his unique obsession to force viewers to experience -- and reevaluate -- American institutions at first hand." - Arthur Unger, The Christian Science Monitor.
