PU-239 is a 2006 impossible-to-classify film about a man who is exposed to deadly levels of radiation in a secret Russian facility and what happens to him afterwards. It is a tragedy with dark comic elements, but that description doesn't do the film justice. Based on a book, which we had never heard of, the film aired on HBO. The Younger Son happened across it and was intrigued. It's fascinating, riveting even.

DVD Verdict recommends it and describes it as "A magnificent drama full of introspection, destruction, gangland comedy, and nuclear material—everything you could ever want from a film!" Rotten Tomatoes gives it a score of 57%.
