The China Syndrome ★★★★★

Some of the Hollywood-entertainment moments ring false against the hard-news, faux-documentary style, particularly Michael Douglas' "Who is this guy?" grandstanding with the network execs. On the other hand, I don't think I've ever been more relatably concerned for someone in a car chase as Jack Lemmon swerving through traffic.

I'm totally a sucker for media-saturation commentary. Give me ironically juxtaposed commercials all day.
