Pripyat

Dir. Nikolaus Geyrhalter (1999). This beautifully shot and eerily restrained documentary takes its title from the long-evacuated town closest to Chernobyl, exploring the contaminated zone, interviewing the “autonomous returnees,” inspecting the radioactive junkyards, and touring the overgrown ruins of this modern Pompeii. The movie’s artfulness and pervasive bleak humor make the experience all the more disconcerting.
