Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb is another Kubrick classic that broke the mould.
An insane general triggers a path to nuclear holocaust that a War Room full of politicians and generals frantically tries to stop.
A black comedy that satirises the Cold War fears of a nuclear conflict between the Soviet Union and the United States.
Dr. Strangelove is an ex-Nazi scientist, suggesting Operation Paperclip, the US effort to recruit top German technical talent at the end of World War II. He serves as President Muffley’s scientific adviser in the War Room.
Dr. Strangelove is filled with great comic performances, and just as well, because there’s so little else in the movie apart from faces, bodies and words. Kubrick shot it on four principal locations (an office, the perimeter of an Air Force base, the “War Room,” and the interior of a B-52 bomber).
