  • Seen after 30 years, Dr. Strangelove seems remarkably fresh and undated - a clear-eyed, irreverant, dangerous satire. And its willingness to follow the situation to its logical conclusion - nuclear annihilation - has a purity that today's lily-livered happy-ending technicians would probably find a way around. show more

  • This landmark movie's madcap humor and terrifying suspense remain undiminished by time. show more

  • Is ''Dr. Strangelove" Kubrick's best movie? Along with ''Paths of Glory," absolutely. show more

    A gem frozen in time for all time. Doesn't matter if you were born yesterday, this film will be important to you even if it's for the sole purpose of training us how to see life from more than one perspective at the same time. Performances abound which are the inspiration of generations of actors, directors, writers. As timeless yet as relevant as they come - thanks to Stanley Kubrick and so many committed and inspired artists.
