Storyline: Paranoid Brigadier General Jack D. Ripper of Burpelson Air Force Base, he believing that fluoridation of the American water supply is a Soviet plot to poison the U.S. populace, is able to deploy through a back door mechanism a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union without the knowledge of his superiors, including the Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Buck Turgidson, and President Merkin Muffley. Only Ripper knows the code to recall the B-52 bombers and he has shut down communication in and out of Burpelson as a measure to protect this attack. Ripper's executive officer, RAF Group Captain Lionel Mandrake (on exchange from Britain), who is being held at Burpelson by Ripper, believes he knows the recall codes if he can only get a message to the outside world. Meanwhile at the Pentagon War Room, key persons including Muffley, Turgidson and nuclear scientist and adviser, a former Nazi named Dr...

Bourbon and pure rainwater
Dr. Strangelove is my favourite Kubrick movie. It still has something of that detachment found in his other movies. However it manages to connect with the audience in a way that the others don't. It's not just the humour, the film rattles along with a narratively-linked sketch-like structure. Each scene is memorable, of the perfect length and has perfect timing. It shares this quality with films like Pulp Fiction and Withnail & I, perhaps even with material like The Goon Show. Note that all of these films have more than their fair share of quotable moments.

This is the story of the Air Force Base commander who 'exceeds his authority' and sends off his bombers to bomb the Ruskies, the President who tries to get them back and the mysterious scientific advisor, Dr. Strangelove who has some interesting ideas. The humour is a subtle shade of pitch black, finding it's comedy in the spectre of nuclear war at the height of the Cold War.

The acting is superb all round, Peter Sellers takes on three roles and plays them marvellously. Even better is the support given from Slim Pickens, George C. Scott and Sterling Hayden. Kubrick uses some excellent lighting and camerawork, most notable in wonderful War Room scenes. Some of the shots are wonderfully composed, between shoulders and across the War Room table, General Jack D. Ripper outlining his theories while we look up from below. The scenes of the attack on the Air Force base are the forerunners of films like Full Metal Jacket and Saving Private Ryan with their shaky, handheld camerawork as if we're invading with the troops.

Some have argued that the film has aged along with the Cold War. It is certainly a savage critique on war and the confrontational politics and posturing of two barely concealed enemies. I think these themes are just as relevant today as they were at the beginning of the 1960s. Just for a moment imagine as the camera looks up at the dramatically lit face of General George W. Bush as he chews on a pretzel and says the following 'I can no longer sit back and allow terrorist infiltration, terrorist indoctrination, terrorist subversion and the international terrorist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious...bodily fluids.' It has a certain, awful sense of familiarity doesn't it?

If you're serious about watching film, this is one that you cannot afford to miss. A classic.

A truthful and funny parody.
Most people like me who are reaching their mid-thirties are likely to have watched thousands, or maybe even tens of thousands of movies. Unlike my parents, we are part of a generation brought up on television. That being the case with so many fine movies around it is difficult for me to pinpoint one as an absolute favourite. But this film would certainly have a good shot.

Peter Sellers and George C Scott probably give the performances of their rich careers. After having now watched the movie 30 or 40 times I still find myself laughing at the deadpan and stiff English Officer Group Captain Lionel Mandrake. Sellers as the President is entirely believable and as the German scientist Strangelove both funny and frightening. Scott is hilarious as the paranoid war-mongering General. The scene where the President asks him "have they got a chance?" will live in my memory forever. Keenan Wynn, Slim Pickens, Stirling Hayden and the lovely Tracey Reed are all simply excellent in support even though Wynn and Reed only have cameos. The fact that some of the jokes are obvious and telegraphed and that it sometimes descends into slapstick, only adds to the effect.

It is funny and a parody but it quite accurately portrays a number of serious points. 1, The paranoia of politicians and the military. 2, The fear that technology was starting to rule men rather than the other way around. 3, The well known, but not talked about much reliance that the American military placed upon recruited former German scientists.

Whilst the film is a parody and meant as a comedy I believe it hurt the American political and military establishment so much that they banned it in the States for a while. Fail-Safe, that other excellent nuclear accident film was released around the same time and suffered by comparison to Strangelove.

The film is a salutary reminder that at almost anytime our future and safety could possibly be in the hands of people who are unstable, or machines that are far from reliable.

The greatest 'black' comedy, if not the greatest comedy ever
Peter Sellers was a comedic genius, pure and simple. Although this term has been horribly overused in recent years, it is the only phrase that can aptly describe his wonderful abilities. You would be hard-pressed to find a performance of his that did not reveal some subtle fact about the human condition, or a performance which did not simply overshadow every other actor in the film. Dr. Strangelove was, I feel, Sellers' greatest achievement on screen, a performance for which any sane person would have given him an Oscar (but who said the Academy Awards made sense?). All three of the characters he portrays are done to perfection, but the character of Dr. Strangelove, the crazed, former Nazi nuclear scientist that calls the President "mein Fuhrer" and has battles between the left and right sides of his body, will forever live in our collective conciousness. Aside from having the greatest performance of arguably the greatest film comedian of all time, this classic has a perfect supporting cast, from George C. Scott as the crazy Air Force general Buck "I'm not saying we won't get our hair mussed" Turgidson, to Sterling Hayden as general Jack Ripper that decides on his own that we have to annihilate all of the Russians to stop them from stealing and polluting our "precious bodily fluids", to finally Slim Pickens, the gung ho captain from Texas that wears a cowboy hat in combat and rides the bomb like a bronco (that moment is, I think, the greatest moment in the film, perhaps one of the greatest moments in film history). Also, there is superb directing on the part of Stanley Kubrick, who after making this masterpiece, unfortunately, went over the deep end with 2001 and A Clockwork Orange. This mighty team of artists brought together a plot which is at the same time both poignantly tragic and completely hillarious (if only the 'comedians' out there could take a lesson from this film, Hollywood would be a far more cultural, sophisticated place). The basic premise is nuclear annihilation: Ripper wants to annihilate the Russians, while the Russians have just completed a domesday machine that would automatically kill all life on Earth if any foreign power attacked Russia. How could such a dark premise be so funny, you ask? I say, watch the film, and you will find out while busting a gut.

"You can't fight in here! This is the war room!"
Stanley Kubrick has made several films that can truly be called great (The Shining, A Clockwork Orange, 2001: A Space Odyssey), several others that are very good (Spartacus, Full Metal Jacket, Barry Lyndon, Paths of Glory) and in a career that spanned from 1951 to 1999, he never made a bad film. However, in those forty-eight years, he made only one perfect movie:

Dr. Strangelove.

(Of course, there are some that would say that 2001 is also perfect, but fuck them - they don't know what they are talking about.)

Dr. Strangelove is, without a doubt, Kubrick's masterwork. It is a smart, wicked satire that uses black and white photography to its very utmost, features three great performances from Peter Sellers (as The President, Mandrake, and the title character, Strangelove), and features some of the most memorable lines in movie history.

This is, very simply, required viewing for any man (or woman) who considers him/herself a fan of great film.

Frighteningly and prophetically relevant for this moment in USA history!
This has always been one of my all-time favorites. Kubrick's nightmare is on the verge of coming true as we have a couple of "General Ripper's" in the form of Cheney and Rumsfeld, who seem intent on wielding absolute power despite a complete lack of psychological self-knowledge. At least Peter Seller's President "had a brain". Not so in our current Oz. If you are heading to your bomb shelter in the upcoming weeks, make sure to take along this classic!

The best movie I have ever seen.
This is my favorite movie of all time. No other movie even comes close. It is the definition of dark comedy, containing some of the funniest lines ever written for the screen. It is also an insightful commentary on American patriotism; no other film portrays its wrong-headed protagonists in such an over-the-top heroic light.

A must watch satire
Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb is a 1964 movie directed by Stanley Kubrick. It is a brilliant dark comedy depicting the paranoia and fear surrounding the nuclear proliferation at the heights of cold war.

The plot of the movie revolves around the arms race and cold war between USA and erstwhile USSR resulting in a nuclear fallout throughout the world. The movie starts with United States Air Force Brigadier General Jack D. Ripper (Sterling Hayden) giving the go code to B-52 bombers of his wing for a nuclear attack on USSR without any provocation. He goes ahead and seals himself in his air-base and cuts off all communication knowing fully that it is impossible to recall the bombers without his recall codes.

An emergency meeting is called by President Merkin Muffley (Peter Sellers) of high profile generals of US Armed Forces at Pentagon. General Buck Turgidson (George C. Scott) briefs the President about the impending 'moment of truth' and tries to convince him for an all out attack on USSR which is ignored. Meanwhile back at the airbase, Group Captain Lionel Mandrake (Peter Sellers) finds out that General Ripper issued the go code for no good reason other than 'the commie boogeymen trying to pollute the natural fluids their enemies' and struggles to recall the bombers.

People at Pentagon are also informed of the unstoppable Russian Doomsday device by Soviet Ambassador Alexei de Sadeski (Peter Bull) built to wipe out all life on earth in case Russia is attacked by Nuclear weapons. The combined efforts of Russians and Americans to stop bombers from reaching the target and the American adviser Dr. Strangelove (Peter Sellers) talking about steps to take in case of doom make the climax of the movie.

Coming to the performances, Peter Sellers without a doubt shines brightly throughout the movie. He managed to play his three characters with equal finesse. George C. Scott and Sterling Hayden did full justice to their respective roles of General Turgidson and Brigadier General Ripper.However this movie solely belong to its director. Kubrick has managed to highlight the absurdity of the unfounded contempt of one towards the other and its consequences. He also brilliantly depicts the dangers of lack of credibility of elements of a power structure.

This movie is definitely among the best political satire movies of all time.

Please no fighting in the war room
Stanley Kubrick's wickedly hilarious end-of-the-world black comedy gem about an impending nuclear war caused by human error straddles a fine line between being fiercely funny and genuinely chilling throughout: As evident by the gross behavior and arrogant attitudes of various high-ranking officials in positions of power that they are neither smart nor mature enough to properly handle, the greatest threat to mankind's safety isn't the existence of nuclear weapons; instead it's such all too real and unavoidable human foibles as pride, stupidity, and incompetence that we should all be more worried about.

The savagely mocking script by Kubrick, Peter George, and Terry Southern pulls zero punches in its no-holds-barred satirizing of said foibles and offers numerous uproarious moments of inspired dark humor: The meek and ineffectual President Merkin Muffley (Peter Sellers in one of three bravura performances) informing the drunken Soviet premier over the phone about the nuclear strike, the hysterically loony speech made by unhinged paranoid General Jack D. Ripper (robustly played with snarly aplomb by Sterling Hayden) about preserving his precious bodily fluids, gung-ho redneck bomber pilot Major 'King' Kong (a marvelously spirited portrayal by Slim Pickens) riding a nuclear missile like a bucking bronco on its final drop while whooping it up, and the gloriously insane plan for survival that batty ex-Nazi adviser Dr. Strangelove (Sellers again at his most sublimely deranged) proposes to President Muffley.

Moreover, the zestful acting from the first-rate cast keeps this movie humming: Sellers pulls off a terrific troika of impressive and highly distinctive turns as Muffley, Strangelove, and uptight RAF group captain Lionel Mandrake, George C. Scott has a field day as bellicose commie-bashing hawk General 'Buck' Turgidson, Keenan Wynn does his usual sturdy work as the gruff Colonel 'Bat' Guano, Peter Bull likewise excels as the shifty Russian ambassador Alexi de Sadesky, Tracy Reed briefly steams things up as sexy secretary Miss Scott, and James Earl Jones handles himself well in his film debut as the thorough Lieutenant Lothar Zogg. Kudos are also in order for Gilbert Taylor's sharp black and white cinematography and Laurie Johnson's rousing military marching band score. Worthy of its classic status.

Still Crazy After All These Years
I have not seen this movie in over twenty years, but it was on my Amazon wish list and I got it. If you were raised during the Cold War you will love this movie! If you have never heard of it before - rent it and watch it - I believe you will enjoy the experience. Just put your mind in the sixties.

Sellers should have never lost the Oscar to Rex Harrison
The Academy has made some stupid decisions for the duration of its existence. Arguably, its stupidest one was made in 1960. I love the movie My Fair Lady as much as the next musical enthusiast, but considering the strong (triple!) performances he gave in Dr. Strangelove, it was simply a travesty that Peter Sellers did not win the Oscar that year. This film is one of the best, if not the best, of Sellers' career, and my favorite of Stanley Kubrick's. It's definitely a thinking person's film; masterfully executed dark humor and satire. A definite must-see. ****/4
