| Obscure Docu-Drama Low Budget Martin Sheen Gem
What really hurts this movie is that this film looks like it was shot on some VHS camcorder that was considered high-end circa 1980. It makes you wain in interest while watching, despite the fact that the plot is both interesting and based on a true incident, incidentally played by the actual people it happened to: a protest and subsequent unlawful entry of GE Plant by a religious group concerning Nuclear Warheads supposedly being manufactured there.

What also makes this film worth a watch is getting to see Martin Sheen as the judge. He acts well but his part is sort of boring. This is probably the lowest budget film I've ever seen Sheen in. Also Jackson Browne, Joe Walsh and Graham Nash provide music for the soundtrack? Those are some pretty big names for a musical score, again - that being mostly eclipsed by it's poor video quality. Makes you wonder if the famous people involved backed the film's production financially, or merely lent their talent to support the group's Anti-Nuclear sentiment.

I was lucky enough to find a rental copy of this at Scarecrow Video in Seattle, otherwise who'd really pay currently $200 to watch this VHS obscurity?
