Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

"Perhaps Kubrick’s most perfectly realized film, simply because his cynical vision of the progress of technology and human stupidity is wedded with comedy." – Geoff Andrew, Time Out

Rogue Brigadier General Jack D. Ripper unilaterally sets nuclear holocaust in motion when he becomes convinced the Russians are trying to poison the U.S. population by fluoridating the water supply. A war room of politicians and military men try and stop him as the doomsday clock starts ticking. Three of these powerful men are played by the irrepressible Peter Sellers, whose role as the title character, a former Nazi scientist who finds religion in America, became one of his most memorable. Released two years after the Cuban Missile Crisis and in the height of the Cold War, Stanley Kubrick dared to make a film about what could happen if the wrong person push the button – and played the situation for laughs. Decades later, even after the end of the Cold War, Dr. Strangelove is as unnerving today as it was in its day.
