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

George C. Scott as the fiery Pentagon general who seizes on the crisis as a means to argue for total annihilation of Russia offers a top performance, one of the best in the film. Odd as it may seem in this backdrop, he displays a fine comedy touch. Full Review

The ultimate touch of ghoulish humor is when we see the bomb actually going off, dropped on some point in Russia, and a jazzy sound track comes in with a cheerful melodic rendition of "We'll Meet Again Some Sunny Day." Somehow, to me, it isn't funny. It is malefic and sick. Full Review

Kubrick's comic gem sparkles with enduring relevance. Full Review

A masterpiece... The genius of Dr. Strangelove is that it's possible to laugh -- and laugh hard -- while still recognizing the intelligence and insight behind the humor. Full Review

Austin Chronicle
More lethal than a nuclear waste dump, Kubrick's komedy at least kills us with laughter... It's one of the greatest - and undoubtably the most hilarious - antiwar statements ever put to film. Full Review
