The Atomic Cafe is a 1982 documentary directed by Jayne Loader and Kevin Rafferty. It consists entirely of U.S. Government footage of nuclear weapons tests, government propaganda, and Civil Defense films, and unlike most documentaries, runs a full 92 minutes without a single word of commentary. The way the Civil Defense nuclear survival strategy of "Duck and Cover" is juxtaposed with films of the destruction wrought by actual nuclear detonations provides all the commentary that is necessary. It also features a cameo by then-president Ronald Reagan, hawking the bomb to the public. The movie makes the kind of impact that the makers of The Day After shot for but missed. The net effect is hilarious, surreal and chilling at the same time, and, if we all hadn't experienced the madness first hand, would seem pretty unbelievable.
