Storyline: Paranoid Brigadier General Jack D. Ripper of Burpelson Air Force Base, he believing that fluoridation of the American water supply is a Soviet plot to poison the U.S. populace, is able to deploy through a back door mechanism a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union without the knowledge of his superiors, including the Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Buck Turgidson, and President Merkin Muffley. Only Ripper knows the code to recall the B-52 bombers and he has shut down communication in and out of Burpelson as a measure to protect this attack. Ripper's executive officer, RAF Group Captain Lionel Mandrake (on exchange from Britain), who is being held at Burpelson by Ripper, believes he knows the recall codes if he can only get a message to the outside world. Meanwhile at the Pentagon War Room, key persons including Muffley, Turgidson and nuclear scientist and adviser, a former Nazi named Dr...

The best movie I have ever seen.
This is my favorite movie of all time. No other movie even comes close. It is the definition of dark comedy, containing some of the funniest lines ever written for the screen. It is also an insightful commentary on American patriotism; no other film portrays its wrong-headed protagonists in such an over-the-top heroic light.
Humor Makes The Pill Go Down
No need to repeat consensus on the movie's general brilliance. As I recall, Kubrick's withering black humor created quite a stir, coming in the midst of Cold War conformity. In loony jest, it even suggests our leaders might be no better (maybe even worse) than the perfidious Soviets. Needless to say, that appeared unpatriotic to many. Nevertheless, it's the inspired lunacy of the acting and writing that makes this bitter pill go down. What stays with me is the movie's obsessive attention to technical detail, whether switch flipping in Kong's bomber, communication set-ups stateside, or the War Room's big board. Lying at the core is that utter contrast between technological expertise, on one hand, and mocking lunacy of the guys in charge, on the other. What the movie seems to say, if you will, is that the same collective intelligence that can create technical marvels is too wacko to use them intelligently. I suspect the lesson still applies, as the movie cleverly implies.
Must see --the greatest political parody (movie) ever made
If you haven't seen this, then you have to get it and watch it. No one should have lived a life and watched any movies without having seen this one! Aside from the performance(s) of Peter Sellers in multiple roles, Slim Pickens, George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden, Keenan Wynn, and a brief role with a very young James Earl Jones are all exemplary. Some of the best political satire ever written (from a book by Peter George).
Still a riot
George Scott's best role and performance of all time. Scott, Sterling Hayden, and Slim Pickens made this movie work. After Strangelove, Scott took himself too seriously.

When I first saw Strangelove in 1963, my friend and I were alone at the matinee in a very large theater in the midwest. We howled unabashadly throughout. The next time I saw it was at a 1985 peace conference in Honolulu - the movie was evidently selected by someone who had never seen it (or a prankster who had). I started laughing from the start and all the peaceniks looked down their noses at me as blasphemous. Within twenty minutes they were howling too.

This is a masterpiece of exaggeration. Don't bother with trying to make deeper meaning out of it. It is pro- and anti- everything. The names tell you that it is meant to be high comedy from the beginning - "Burpelson", "Turgidson", "Kong", "Kissoff", "Bat Guano", and "Strangelove".

See it. Again and again.
Outstanding, timeless classic!
One of the best films ever made, this remains timeless despite changes in technology, foreign policy and world politics; the military/political madness remains the same. Gets better all the time, with successive viewings and its luster has not dimmed since its first release.

With three show-stopping performances from Sellers (amongst his best work, if not THE BEST), and an unexpectedly hilarious turn by George C. Scott (if Sellers weren't SO dead on-target, Scott would easily steal the show), STRANGELOVE is filled with cartoonish, over-the-top characters that, despite the lunacy, still ring true. Special mention must be made for Sterling Heyden's controlled, brooding paranoia as General Jack D. Ripper. He's funny, he's scary.

All-in-all, a brilliant piece of work by all involved.
mandrake was the weakest of the 3 sellers personae

my only criticism of this otherwise perfect masterpiece from kubrick is that i felt that the mandrake character played by sellers could have been a bit better. what i mean is that i felt his scenes with the insane general jack ripper were really designed as a "staging" ground for the audience to hear from and learn about the general's psychosis with bodily fluids.

however, the scenes could have been a lot better if **in addition** to learning about the general's theories we also were to see mandrake trying to wrest the key from the general, or trying to get to a phone,

trying to kill the general, trying to jump out the window. in this manner mandrake would have been an interesting contrast to president muffley's calm handling of the crisis or scotts eagerness to go to war.

instead, most of the time is spent just listening to the general and waiting for the soldiers to come. witness for example how wonderful the mandrake character becomes when he tries to interact with the "bat guano" lieutenant trying to convince him to get some change for a phone call to the president. more of that kind of silly "nervous tension" would have pushed mandrake's character over the top i think, and put it in league with the other dr. strangelove and president muffley personae played by sellers.
Laughing at Fear
What makes this film so powerful is the message that it made at the time of its release. This film came out at a height of paranoia of the nuclear age and the Cold War, right around the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis. This film depicts a horrible, tragic incident in which a breach in the government and a few diplomatic mistakes result in nuclear holocaust. So, why didn't this film inspire panic? Because of the brilliant way in which Kubrick presents it... as a satire. The scariest thing about this film in retrospect is not how it depicts the impending doom of the Cold War, but how it makes you laugh at it. By presenting it with humor, it conveys just how much of a farce the nuclear arms race was in real life. And I don't think that any other film has captured the absurdity of war nearly as well as this one has. And I am not likely to believe that one ever will. In my opinion, Kubrick has never made a better film since. And kudos to George C. Scott for his astounding performance, as well as Peter Sellers for the most versatile acting I've seen from an actor in one film, and to Sterling Hayden, for performing the most serious, yet the most hilarious role in film with perfect accuracy. Beware of fluoridation!
A superb movie. This is what great cinema is made of. Best of the best.
Best dark comedy I've ever seen? Yes. Absolutely.

Best "anti-war" movie? Probably. It does strike a lot of nerves. It'll make you feel strangely uneasy at the end.

Best Peter Sellers' movie? Yes, without a doubt. Best Kubrick's movie? Yes, indeed.

One of my favorite movies? You bet it is.

I had heard a lot about M*A*S*H and Dr. Strangelove. From all the comments, it seemed M*A*S*H was the better movie, and Strangelove was the more serious take on war of the bunch. So I watched both over the weekend. My final take? M*A*S*H is a fake, a travesty, an insult for all the people who ever fought a war. It tried to capitalize on the drug craze of the 70's by presenting a bunch of surgeons getting drunk and drugging themselves and having a good time. That's the extent of its "anti-war" message, I guess: "make love, not war".

Dr. Strangelove, is, OTOH, a cinematic masterpiece. It presents a series of questions to the viewer in the form of a parody. The fact that nuclear holocaust could start because of a human error, and the very specific and detailed characters who would intervene in it. The powerless president. The crazed general. The alarmed russian president. The obsessed texan pilot. It all comes together perfectly - there's no filler here. From the first shot of the bombers flying to the shocking conclusion, this movie never lets your attention drift and instead keeps on questioning the viewers' sense of right and wrong. And all of this is presented in the form of an hilarious comedy.

I'm actually grateful about the comedy aspect of the film, because it makes it all the most impressive that, when the credit rolls, you end up feeling quite nervous and unsettled. This is a film that raises many questions, answers them with the particular point of view of Kubrick, and leaves you to ponder them.

Truly, this is a great film. Highly recommended.
The Absurdity of War
Looking back on all the films I've seen, I can't think of any movie that's as genuinely fun to watch as this Stanley Kubrick masterwork. Through its goofy, over-the-top characters, the film examines the absurdity of war while letting its viewer laugh at its utter pointlessness.

"Dr. Strangelove" focuses on the possibility of nuclear Armageddon. A psychotic air commander, General Ripper, sends all bombers of his wing to attack Russia. He believes that the Soviets are attempting to fluoridate U.S. water in order to degrade bodily fluids, thereby, not allowing Americans to reproduce. The film cuts between three different settings: (1) One of Ripper's B-52 bombers, (2) Ripper's locked office, in which his second-in-command officer Captain Mandrake desperately tries to figure out the recall code for the planes, and (3) the Pentagon's underground war room, in which the President and his staff try to keep the conflict from getting out of hand.

Kubrick directs flawlessly, as usual, but the greatest asset of the film is its cast. George C. Scott is unforgettable in the role of Buck Turgidson, an excitable, anti-Communist, gung-ho general. It probably helps that he is given so many of the movie's most memorable lines, but his dialogue delivery and facial expressions are simply hilarious. Think of the scene in which the idea of the Doomsday Device is presented by the Russian ambassador. Turgidson declares it to be "an obvious Commie trick" while walking backwards. Then he suddenly falls down, somersaults, and lands on his feet. Scott didn't fall intentionally, but he continued to recite his lines as he was rolling on the floor. It's a hysterically funny moment, but it's even more amazing to think that it wasn't even planned.

Peter Sellers takes on three completely different roles with unique accents and mannerisms. His performances as President Muffley and Captain Mandrake are brilliant in how restrained they are, and in how well he plays off of the nutcases (including himself as the title character) around him. His scenes with Turgidson in the war room are ingenious, as are his telephone conversations with the Russian leader, but he does his most memorable work when the character Mandrake is being ordered around by the idiotic Colonel "Bat Guano". Keenan Wynn, as Guano, displays perfect comic timing, and the combination of these two actors is impeccable. Sterling Hayden, Peter Bull, and Slim Pickens are also mesmerizing in their roles.

"Dr. Strangelove" is an undeniably funny and entertaining film, but it also has moments of beauty. For example, the opening credits with the planes drifting through the air with the tune of "Try a Little Tenderness". Or the famous image of Major Kong riding a nuclear missile towards its target. The final montage of H-bomb mushroom clouds set to "We'll Meet Again" (an idea suggested by Peter Sellers) is among the most sublimely magnificent moments I've seen in a movie.

Kubrick does a good job of summing up the spirit of "Dr. Strangelove": "After all, what could be more absurd than the very idea of two mega-powers willing to wipe out all human life because of an accident, spiced up by political differences that will seem as meaningless to people a hundred years from now as the theological conflicts of the Middle Ages appear to us today?"
The Ultimate Black Comedy
Few films are able to take a deadly serious issue and place it within the context of a broad comedy successfully. Dr. Strangelove does exactly that. Kubrick's masterpiece illustrates in brilliant fashion the idiocy of nuclear war and the idiots who are orchestrating it. What strikes one most however in this cinematic gem are the individual characterisations of Sellers, Scott, Hayden and Pickens. To refer to them as memorable roles is a gross understatement. With names such as President Merkin Muffley, General "Buck" Turgidson, General Jack D. Ripper and Major T.J. "King" Kong, you know that these characters will not be soon forgotten. Other features of the film such as the remarkably designed "war room" set, the hand-held camera techniques employed by Kubrick and the black and white cinematography of Gilbert Taylor only add to the power and impact of "Strangelove." Quite simply, the greatest American film by the greatest American director.
