Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
Stanley Kubrick, 1964, 93 min., 35mm

Released two months after John F. Kennedy's assassination, Kubrick's classic cold war satire paints the United States' political and military establishment as a chain of command gone mad. With indelible performances by George C. Scott and Peter Sellers (in three roles), Dr. Strangelove's power brokers seethe with sexual fears, calculate "acceptable losses" in the tens of millions, fall down drunk, involuntarily offer Nazi salutes, and imagine the adventure of a post-nuclear-war America to come. Based on Peter George's serious thriller Red Alert, Dr. Strangelove was nominated for four Oscars (though it didn't win any).

Part of Richard Avedon: Notes on "Nothing Personal".


$5 general; free for SFMOMA members or with museum admission (requires a free ticket, which can be picked up in the Haas Atrium). Double features: films offered on the same date are included in one ticket.
