I've said this before here. Im born and raised in New Mexico. My Great Grand Parents and their 3 daughters lived and worked at Los Alamos for the Manhattan project. My great grandparents both died of the same rarest form of brain cancer. My great grandmother was at the trinity launch.Agreed, but it's not merely a matter of inaccuracies.
If one is sympathetic to communism...the events of the film are treated one way. If one views communism as the ideological sibling of facsism and the source of 100 million deaths...the film's treatment of events would be very different. The arcs of the narrative, interpretation of characters and their motives shift wildly based on world views.
Same for the justification (or not) of the bomb and it's utilization in WW2.
No question the movie is superbly crafted and acted... riveting...award winning. Whether one learns the meta thru the viewing...is another open question.
I was a history major @UCLA and can confirm: the victor tells it as they see it/wish it. And that can be extended: whoever has the commercial and cultural clout in a society often tells history however the hell they want.
They actually called it "Operation Tea Cup" and they used Disney cartoon images as proof she went through the mushroom cloud.
