This is a very rare beast - an intelligent, laugh-out-loud but scary if you think about it film. Stanley Kubrick is one of my three favorite directors and this will be my first chance to see any of his films on the big screen. I can't wait!
Dr. Strangelove Or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.
This darkly comedic satire stars Sterling Hayden as an unhinged United States Air Force general who orders a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union. Then, it’s up to the President of the United States, a Royal Air Force (RAF) officer (both played by Peter Sellers), the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (George C. Scott) and a former Nazi named Dr. Strangelove (Sellers again!) to try to recall the bombers to prevent a nuclear apocalypse. 1hr 35min, PG
