When I first saw this film 2 years ago, I saw it, I thought about it for a second, and I thought it was good, but I didn't understand why it was so universally loved. Really high on IMDB's Top 250 list, has a near perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes, put high on a few of AFI's lists, and at the top of many people's and critic's all time favorite films. So I got to thinking, why was it so well loved?<... read more

Not having grown up in the black & white era, I can't say I'm normally a fan of old classics, yet this movie compelled me. It's one of the most satirical black comedy I've ever seen, dealing with a topic that was very sensitive to people at the time; Nuclear War with the USSR.

It centres around a US General that has lost his sanity and single-handedly issues a code to all the B-... read more

There is no doubt in my mind that Peter Sellers made this movie. And what a movie!

Sellers plays several characters in this film, Group Captain Lionel Mandrake, President Merkin Muffley and of course Dr. Strangelove. Each not only showed an amazing command of various accents, English, American and German in that order; but highlighted just exactly why Seller's was one of the greate... read more

Description: Convinced that the Russians have infiltrated America's "vital essence," the crazed General Jack D. Ripper (Sterling Hayden) gives the go code to the 843rd bomb wing to attack Russia, setting in motion a series of darkly hilarious vignettes involving gung-ho soldiers, wacky generals, spying Russians, drunken premiers, battles with soda machines, fights in the War Room, and the Russians' top-secret Doomsday Machine. Shot in black and white, the film has three main centers of action: one of the B-52 bombers, on which a group of loyal men know they are about to start World War III; Burpelson Air Force Base, where Group Cap ...

This is Cinema (92 movies items)

"Es una película a prueba de remakes, ya que el contexto de esta cinta es tan particular que no puede ser readaptado a otra época que no sea la Guerra Fría en medio de la paranoia nuclear mundial. Considerenlo su punto fuerte y débil a la vez, pero no digan que Kubrick hizo chistesitos al aire sobre el presidente soviético siendo un alcohólico y posible homosexual o dos bombas que parecen una pija gigante."

" Truthfuly speaking, the amount of time it took for Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb to finally grow on me was almost as long as the title of this movie is.  I first watched it when I was very young, so it was no surprise that's it's intention was completely lost on me. However, as I grew older, and began to appreciate things such as Peter Sellers multi-talented, comedic style of acting (particularlly when it comes to black satire), and Stanley Kubrick's l"

Classic Cold War black comedy; Kubrick's best film

“Verified Purchase

I have long been torn between this and 2001: A Space Odyssey as vying for the title of Kubrick's best movie. Having watched the former again, I would have to call it a draw.

Dr Strangelove brilliantly dissects the insanity of "Mutually Assured Destruction" , the Cold War policy that led to the ability to wipe out the human race many times over. Sadly, nothing has been learnt from it. Nuclear arsenals remain. Perhaps this film should be mandatory viewing for political leaders who have control of such things.

Peter Sellars gives some of the best film performances of his career as an RAF officer, then deranged Nazi scientific adviser to his portrayal of a US president.

The film looks very good in this 1080p version.” read more

Films Watched In The Year Of The Tiger (2022) (103 movies items)

"4.11. In your face macabre satire. For politicians people are just pawns and lambs to be slaughtered, I doubt Kubrick even understood how close to the reality he actually was, since during the Cuban Crisis the Soviet forces chose to launch the nuclear war but were prevented by one general who lost half of his crew on a nuclear submarine accident. Now that's a helluva story for another day."

What your favorite movie (really) says about you.. (57 movies items)

"If Dr. Strangelove is your favorite movie....You love Peter Sellers; he is a great hero of yours, and revel and delight in the light, though politically relevant, films of the 1960's: the fun, the swinging, the music, the latent hint of psychadelia - but, more importantly, the satiric statement that is prescient for a world to come (err, I mean, the world we are in, now, right now, the climax of the entire universe, now).
