Watch Fat Man and Little Boy - Alternative Versions.
It's rare for a movie to both encompass the process of problem solving
and a fantastically far-reaching moral quandary AND be a fairly
accurate historical movie, but Fat Man and Little Boy pulls off this
It's the story of the Manhattan Project -- the World War II effort to
build the atom bomb, told as the conflict between the two men who made
it happen, Gen. Leslie Groves and Robert Oppenheimer.
The historical figures are a great study in opposites: military vs.
civilian, practical vs. idealistic, emotional vs. scientific, brute
force vs. consensus-based problem solving, immediacy vs. long-term
vision. A fictional character, played by John Cusack, is added as a
sort of synthesis of the two historical figures, to show the humanity
that oddly escapes the real people (and of course the obligatory love
interest, played by Laura Dern). One looking for a straight documentary
might criticize the lapses into melodrama (and occasional looseness
with the facts, but that's Hollywood for ya), but the purpose of
fiction is to synthesize and galvanize events into more universal
truths, so I think this can be forgiven.
One of the great visuals in the movie is when Oppenheimer witnesses the
first atomic explosion: it's done entirely through his reaction, and
considering the awesome visuals inherent in an atomic explosion, it's a
brave and entirely effective way of describing in a single moment the
ambivalent effect on humans of unleashing such power (the sort of thing
lost in the typical Hollywood shoot 'em up version of history.) The use
of music is particularly excellent in the last third of the movie.
Fairly accessible and highly recommended as both a historical movie and
drama of the highest order.
