Dr. Strangelove (PG)

Director: Stanley Kubrick
Starring: Peter Sellers,
George C Scott, Sterling Hayden
GB, 1963, 1 hour 34 minutes, B/W

Both hilarious and scary, this is a classic black comedy that brilliantly satirises how government and military incompetence could result in nuclear holocaust. Kubrick's most perfectly realised film, in which his cynical vision of human stupidity and technological progress gone haywire is wedded to a sparkling, witty script, is most memorable for Peter Sellers' masterful performances in three distinct roles; as the US President, as a British officer, and, as Dr Strangelove, the President's crazy, ex-Nazi, evil genius advisor.
