Dr. Strangelove

1 Hr. 35 Min.
Screening format: 35mm

Continue our romp through Kubrick's oeuvre with this MFF2014 alum. With the Soviet Union and U.S. on the verge of nuclear war, it only takes one loony general (Sterling Hayden) who believes that the Commies seek to destroy our “precious bodily fluids,” a Pentagon war room populated by maniacs (including an unhinged George C. Scott, with Peter Sellers playing both the president and a Nazi scientist), and a patriotic B-52 bomber pilot carrying an atomic payload (the iconic Slim Pickens) to assure our mutual destruction. Not just a great black comedy, but one of the greatest films of all time, Kubrick's “Dr. Strangelove” is vicious, hilarious political satire that resonates in 2018 just as much as in 1964.
