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

Directed by Stanley Kubrick
United Kingdom, United States, 1964
Comedy, War, Drama

Synopsis

Stanley Kubrick’s painfully funny take on Cold War anxiety is one of the fiercest satires of human folly ever to come out of Hollywood. Finding improbable hilarity in nearly every unimaginable scenario, Dr. Strangelove is a subversive masterpiece that officially announced Kubrick as an auteur.

This film will always be vital and current. It is as perceptive and chilling as any made about the conjoined twins of man and war. And the funniest.

The prismatic brilliance of Stanley Kubrick’s demented oil slick of a satire is such that successive generations would argue vehemently over which feels its relevance most keenly. But then, Strangelove contains multitudes…, Kubrick never underestimated the cupidity and stupidity of those with the power to end humanity.

One of the masterpieces of filmmaking. And though photographed in England by an expatriate who would never return, it is very much an American masterpiece, brimful of American types and stereotypes, American madness and ingenuity, every species of American idiolect, from regional slang to institutional euphemism.
