Yeah, the sheer tangible feeling of pain and loss that you get from that documentary is almost unbearable.

I think the thing that interests me the most about Chernobyl is that it illustrates just how broken the system was in the USSR.

They aren't letting the public take tours anymore?  I was planing on getting out there this summer.

Edit:  Something tells me this will be another "The Hills have Eyes"

You're thinking of me. And yes, I'll have to watch it even though it has absolutely ZERO credibility from what I've seen.

Also, depending on when they're saying the movie takes place, it might not even be credible then. The only people who can take tours in have to be registered with Chernobylinterinform, and even then, there's talk that they're only letting scientific crews in since late last year due to legality questions in the national courts in the Ukraine.

I still wanna go there though. Two reasons, see how screwed up it is, and to see communism just frozen in time
