Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb Review

Screen Shot 2015-09-18 at 9.19.12 PM
Another Kubrick classic, Dr. Strangelove is a Cold War satire that still holds up. Full of Peter Sellers, full of great performances, full of hilarious improvisations by Sellers, and a grand, ridiculous performance by  George C. Scott, Dr. Strangelove is still as awesome as it was back when it came out in 1964. Full of iconic film moments, perfectly paced, and full of hilarious dialogue, Dr. Strangelove is a very different side of Kubrick that  we thankfully got to see in this film, because Peter Sellers and Kubrick as a comedic film duo are astonishingly great. Personally, I love the Jack and Mandrake scenes the most due to how great Hayden Sterling’s performance is as this paranoiac patriot, but The War Room and bomber-plane story-lines are also great, James Earl Jones is in it, and this film is all around fantastic. I rank it at a 97 out of 100.
