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).
