Cinema Cycle - War and Peace in the Nuclear Age - Vol 7

(Cardio Workout And Reviewing Movies At The Same Time)

SYNOPSIS: The status of the cold war between the Soviet Union and the United States, circa 1980.

CONCEPT IN RELATION TO THE VIEWER: The concept of global politics in the nuclear age and the art of brinkmanship.

PROS AND CONS: This viewing encompassed the last two episodes of the series; “Carter’s New World” and “Visions of War and Peace”.

Interesting enough, this series appears to be available for online viewing for free at the WGBH website.

I have seen this series several time in the past and it only gets better with age. It hammers home the point, that politics and global tension are an ongoing thing, with more twists and turns than we can ever hope to remember. Nothing really changes, except the technology.

To read an overview of this project, check out this status posting.  

This film is a part of my LaserDisc Collection.

Clicking on the title will take you to the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) entry for this film. 

This film was viewed while exercising on my recumbent cycle.  A summary of my time spent working out on my journey through movie-land can be found on
