The Original Nuclear Monster Unleashed in Japan
Godzilla at Fukishima 2011
In 1954, 9 years after the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and long before the release of atomic nightmares such as Dr Strangelove and Fail Safe, Toho, a Japanese film company produced the first and still best known blatant graphic metaphor for the nuclear monster unleashed.
The cinematic masterpiece, GODZILLA
