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...

A great comedy that almost wasn't
Thank goodness, Stanley Kubrick changed this movie from being a straight drama to what is considered one of the greatest comedies of all time. This movie is chock full of great bits and one liners that one could watch it over and over and never get tired of it. My favorite scene has to be Peter Sellers' President's phone conversation with the Soviet Union President over who is more sorry. The line, "Gentlemen you can't fight in here, this is the war room!" belongs right up there with "Nobody's perfect" as lines that need no clarification. One of the top five comedies in my opinion.

A brilliant, satirical, and black comedy for the ages.
Stanley Kubrick's political masterpiece "Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" is a brilliant satire on the cold war as we follow absurd characters trying to deal with a rogue general and his order to bomb the enemy. While this isn't Kubrick's first impressive work, this one did separate himself as a filmmaker who genuinely and courageously follows his vision without much regard for outside opinion or public reaction.

A daring and controversial picture, "Dr. Strangelove" is a satirical and darkly comical take on a potentially genocidal war which could understandably anger audience members at the time. The film is filled with situational, tonal, cosmic, and dramatic irony that make this film anything but a casual time at the movies. In fact, it's best to see this film more than two or three times to pick up on new jokes and humor that normally go unnoticed.

Peter Sellers and George C. Scott offer ridiculous and characterized performances that feel so cartoonish we can't help but laugh. Together, they paint this picture of politics in the most absurd way. Yet at the same time, we feel that it could be plausible given the clearly defined character needs and wants. Kubrick helps us believe in the characters (notwithstanding their unbelievable behavior) by placing them in relatable circumstances and exposing them for their basic human needs and desires despite being in grave danger: survival and sex. Yes, the drive to survive and the constant subtle and obvious situations of reproducing as a means of not only distraction, but actual motivation for characters.

"Dr. Strangelove" remains a brilliant satirical piece that's wonderfully written, engaging, and eternally re-watchable. While the humor may be too subtle for most audiences to pick up on first viewing, "Dr. Strangelove" deserves a chance by the new generation of moviegoers. It's fantastic and while not easily accessible to everyone, worth the effort to try and understand because it will not disappoint.

Great film!
I usually don't like comedies very much. In this case, I've got to say that this comedy is amazing. You can appreciate the subtle view of the world during those years: the war was changing the world and people's mind. There's some irony in it: a theme like the war was taken into consideration in an ironical and safe way. I consider this film, one of the best films about the cold war. And Kubrick has made a great work.

Just the best
That is it really, the best movie ever made! But they want four lines so: Kubrick's best film, it combines humor with one of modern mankind's greatest fear, nuclear holocaust. See this today! It is an AFI top 100 for a reason!

Frighteningly and prophetically relevant for this moment in USA history!
This has always been one of my all-time favorites. Kubrick's nightmare is on the verge of coming true as we have a couple of "General Ripper's" in the form of Cheney and Rumsfeld, who seem intent on wielding absolute power despite a complete lack of psychological self-knowledge. At least Peter Seller's President "had a brain". Not so in our current Oz. If you are heading to your bomb shelter in the upcoming weeks, make sure to take along this classic!

Our natural fluids!!! Best Movie out of the 1960's
I can't begin to say enough GOOD things about this film! I love the whole black comedy genre (which are movies that place a comedic tone to a rather morbid premise). First of all, each of the actors does an amazing job of acting out their roles (with the exception of Slim Pickens, whose character can get down-right annoying), the performance of the ultra right-winged psychotic General Jack Ripper played by Sterling Hayden was Oscar-caliber, Peter Sellers does an exquisite job playing three different characters including the title character role of Dr. Strangelove and I was deliriously amused by the part played by George C Scott. Though it may seem a little taboo to poke fun at the notion of a nuclear holocaust brought forth by the Cold War, this film is a drop dead funny and entertaining compilation of great acting, a superb screenplay, excellent directing and a FABULOUS ending sequence. Some of the scenes in the fighter jet with Slim Pickens can lag and make you want to hit the ‘fast forward' button, but the highly entertaining scenes in the war room do more than make up for it. It's no wonder that this film was placed at #3 on the American Film Institutes 100 greatest comedies of all time. This is a must see for anyone studying film, or planning on being a movie critic. This movie is truly a classic and I could watch it another 16 times.

Brilliant Dark Comedy!
Dr. Strangelove is my second review of a Stanley Kubrick movie. Earlier I posted a review of his 1960 film, Spartacus which I generally liked, but did not love. Spartacus was a mainstream, straightforward film that he adapted from a novel. For this movie, it is an entirely different story. I loved every single bit of the black comedy which was written by Kubrick himself (which he adapted from the Peter George novel). This is actually one of the best films to come out in the last fifty years. It was a timely movie (for 1964's audience), and it remains hilarious for the duration of the film even though Kubrick told his actors to play it straight. It was the talent of Kubrick that turned this film into a film he wanted, a quirky black comedy.

Kubrick is known to be a perfectionist in all of his films. He is involved with every detail including sound, editing, etc. He even has his own sound equipment and his own cameras. Because he wanted to be so perfect, it created tension between him and his actors. For example, Kubrick never got along with George C. Scott who played a major role in the movie. Kubrick used some trickery to get Scott, a very hard actor to work with, to get what he wanted and Scott vowed never to work with Kubrick again. Scott, however, did admit he respected Kubrick due to his chess skills, which they played on set every day.

The movie plays out like a spoof, a spoof about the Cold War. At the beginning of the film, General Jack D. Ripper (Sterling Hayden) goes bananas and he orders his bomber planes to annihilate the Soviet Union. He has some crackpot idea that the communist nation is conspiring to destroy the Americans via their bodily fluid. Over in America, in the "War Room," President Merkin Muffley (Peter Sellers) meets with his advisors to figure out what to do, and they are informed by the Russian Ambassador that if the Soviet Union is destroyed, that would unleash a machine called "The Doomsday Machine" and that will destroy all of humanity.

There are some interesting themes presented in the movie. The main theme is the Cold War, which was a silent war between the United States and the Soviet Union. The early 1960's was a tense era due to such events like the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Cuban Revolution, in which the Soviets had a hand in. The movie is particularly interested in satirizing MAD, or the mutual assured destruction. Both sides wanted to destroy each other in a nuclear standoff, but they were deterred in doing so because all human life would be destroyed regardless. Another theme presented is a sexual theme, which Kubrick later admitted. The beginning with the airplanes going in to Russia is meant to be the start of the sexual process and Kong's (a character in the film) ride down on the missile and detonation is meant to be the ending of the sexual process.

The film is famous for a variety of reasons. One of those reasons is Peter Sellers playing three roles. He played President Merkin Muffley, who was based off an American Midwesterner and a has a balding figure. He spoke in a tone that suggested he had a cold, an underlying weakness that Sellers wanted to give to that character. Muffley was played straight by Sellers, but I felt his character was actually hilarious. Sellers also portrayed Group Captain Lionel Mandrake, the only man accessible to the mad General Ripper. Finally, Sellers portrayed Dr. Strangelove, my favorite character in the movie. Strangelove is an ex-Nazi scientist who serves as Muffley's scientific adviser. I loved the accent Sellers used to portray the wheelchair-bound eccentric. I also loved how he had this thing called the "alien hand syndrome" I just couldn't stop laughing when Strangelove randomly used the Nazi salute and called the President "Mein Fuhrer" several times over the course of the film. I found it hilarious the Americans would employ former Nazis in the movie. Strangelove appeared to be a menacing antagonist of the movie, and a great one at that.

There are also great supporting turns, mainly in George C. Scott's character, General Buck Turgidson. He was the adviser who alerted the President to the news and he was really funny. I loved the use of his facial contortions to display his emotions. He reminded me of Jim Carrey, who is famous for his extreme facial contortions as part of his comedy routine. There is one scene where the General was running in the War Room and slipped, then picked himself up again as if nothing happened. According to Kubrick, the scene wasn't planned but it worked perfectly with the movie. Sterling Hayden had a rather small role as General Ripper at the beginning, but it was a very memorable role. Finally, there is Slim Pickens who plays Major Kong-the leader of the airplane in charge of throwing a bomb on the USSR. Pickens reportedly wasn't told the film was a comedy, and he played his role straight. With the use of the heavy Southern accent, his role was still funny. His role was actually meant for Peter Sellers, but Sellers didn't want to do it because he had trouble with a Southern accent and he sprained an ankle and wasn't able to sit in the cockpit of the airplane.

Dr. Strangelove is seen as one of Stanley Kubrick's best films and it is very easy to see why. Well, both this film and 2001: A Space Odyssey are his best films,and they share common themes. Manmade machines attempting to destroy humans. Nonetheless, this film was very fun to watch and it made me laugh constantly. As a Cold War farce, the movie does a wonderful job.

My Grade: A+

The greatest 'black' comedy, if not the greatest comedy ever
Peter Sellers was a comedic genius, pure and simple. Although this term has been horribly overused in recent years, it is the only phrase that can aptly describe his wonderful abilities. You would be hard-pressed to find a performance of his that did not reveal some subtle fact about the human condition, or a performance which did not simply overshadow every other actor in the film. Dr. Strangelove was, I feel, Sellers' greatest achievement on screen, a performance for which any sane person would have given him an Oscar (but who said the Academy Awards made sense?). All three of the characters he portrays are done to perfection, but the character of Dr. Strangelove, the crazed, former Nazi nuclear scientist that calls the President "mein Fuhrer" and has battles between the left and right sides of his body, will forever live in our collective conciousness. Aside from having the greatest performance of arguably the greatest film comedian of all time, this classic has a perfect supporting cast, from George C. Scott as the crazy Air Force general Buck "I'm not saying we won't get our hair mussed" Turgidson, to Sterling Hayden as general Jack Ripper that decides on his own that we have to annihilate all of the Russians to stop them from stealing and polluting our "precious bodily fluids", to finally Slim Pickens, the gung ho captain from Texas that wears a cowboy hat in combat and rides the bomb like a bronco (that moment is, I think, the greatest moment in the film, perhaps one of the greatest moments in film history). Also, there is superb directing on the part of Stanley Kubrick, who after making this masterpiece, unfortunately, went over the deep end with 2001 and A Clockwork Orange. This mighty team of artists brought together a plot which is at the same time both poignantly tragic and completely hillarious (if only the 'comedians' out there could take a lesson from this film, Hollywood would be a far more cultural, sophisticated place). The basic premise is nuclear annihilation: Ripper wants to annihilate the Russians, while the Russians have just completed a domesday machine that would automatically kill all life on Earth if any foreign power attacked Russia. How could such a dark premise be so funny, you ask? I say, watch the film, and you will find out while busting a gut.

Best satire of all time?
I wanted to add comments here in response to some detractors. Truly, I see this film as almost impossible to fault. However, there are commentors here who are quick to say the the film is "not funny". I think that all depends on your expectations. "Dr. Strangelove" is satire, not straight comedy. In that sense, if you try to compare this film to something by the Farrely brothers, it just doesn't work.

I'll say it again: Satire. The greatness behind the humor here is the chilling logic behind it. What's funny about this film is how disturbing and timeless it is. A great satire makes you come away angry, because there's usually a cynical message behind it.

In fact, with our great president's dubious current inititatives to start up another arms race, "Dr. Strangelove" is once again proving its relevance.

Along with "The Player", "Dr. Strangelove" is one of the best SATIRE'S of all time. And Peter Sellers would never be better.

Sharp and outrageously entertaining
I never really bought into the Kubrick hype. I mean: don't get me wrong; I like all of his films very much - but to me, they all feel somewhat over-constructed and lack a natural flow. And then I finally got to see 'Dr.Strangelove'. Wow. What a terrific, pitch black satire. This film is so wild and mean and funny - and Peter Sellers gives THE performance of his career. Unlike in any of Kubrick's later works, there's a sense of playfulness here that gives the whole movie a crazy kind of energy; I'm guessing that Seller's love for improvisation forced Kubrick to ditch his usual perfectionism to a certain degree (and the film is all the better for it). Sharp, outrageously entertaining comedy/satire by one of the most revered directors of the past century. 10 out of 10.
