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...

so sad
This is a sad movie. You won't be depressed while watching it; you'll be too busy laughing you head off. The sad thing is, that a movie about nuclear holocaust could be so funny. I could imagine this happening 15 years ago, which is frightening. Sellers (in 3 roles), Scott, and Pickens (playing it as a drama) are tops of the great all around cast. Pickens on the bull and Dr. Strangelove's first appearance are classic moments in a classic movie. 10/10

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.

Brilliant, just brilliant
The film opens with a simple printed disclaimer: `The US army claims to have safeguards in place which render the following events impossible', or words to that effect. Well, I'm willing to believe that. Besides, that was 1964. Things have changed since, and the chances of an accidental nuclear exchange - between the United States and Russia, at any rate - have dropped considerably. But `Strangelove' STILL gives me a small thrill of panic. Kubrick plays on our nerves masterfully. At one moment it seems as if the forces of sanity are going to win, the next minute it seems as though they don't stand a chance: I won't reveal all the cleverly constructed reversals of fortune, but part of me is itching to.

Peter Sellers's performances (all four of them) are gleeful fun to watch. It was a stroke of genius NOT making the president a buffoon. In fact he's a decent and intelligent man, by no means a weak leader, and his relationship with Dmitri (the Russian general secretary) is almost touching - not that any of this helps him very much.

I've noticed that a number of people who say they aren't fond of Kubrick in general make an exception for this film. I can see why - even though I AM fond of Kubrick in general.

More actual than ever
This film is more actual than ever. It is scary how our leaders fail too learn any lessons from this film. It should be required watching on any general staff course. I can only recommend everyone to see it and be very afraid when they laugh!

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.

Subtle and Symbolic
Entertainment Weekly called this one of the funniest 100 movies ever made. It also happens to be one of the most disturbing movies made. The humor is right there in your face, however, there is always an underlining political critique under every character, every line, and every government representation. Slim Pickins is the never quit Airman. He is a representative of our entire military system of the time. The president, played beautifully by Peter Sellers, is a demure, calm presence trying to deal with the Russian premiere. His perfect counterpart is a war hungry General, ready to accuse the Russians of any small infraction. This leads to one of the funniest lines in the whole movie. Sellers also plays a British airman who has to deal with the crazed general in the usual polite British manner. Seller's third role is that of the title character, Dr. Strangelove, a former nazi and weapons designer for the Americans. He represents the scientific community of that time period; those who worked tirelessly to build a better bomb. These characters, all of them strongly parodying a cross section of society make for an odd story. The final scene, while played for laughs, is actually a frightening image of a communist future. The final moments are frightening in their truth leading one to put themselves in a position of the characters. Dr. Strangelove is the funniest disturbing film I've ever seen.

Bourbon and pure rainwater
Dr. Strangelove is my favourite Kubrick movie. It still has something of that detachment found in his other movies. However it manages to connect with the audience in a way that the others don't. It's not just the humour, the film rattles along with a narratively-linked sketch-like structure. Each scene is memorable, of the perfect length and has perfect timing. It shares this quality with films like Pulp Fiction and Withnail & I, perhaps even with material like The Goon Show. Note that all of these films have more than their fair share of quotable moments.

This is the story of the Air Force Base commander who 'exceeds his authority' and sends off his bombers to bomb the Ruskies, the President who tries to get them back and the mysterious scientific advisor, Dr. Strangelove who has some interesting ideas. The humour is a subtle shade of pitch black, finding it's comedy in the spectre of nuclear war at the height of the Cold War.

The acting is superb all round, Peter Sellers takes on three roles and plays them marvellously. Even better is the support given from Slim Pickens, George C. Scott and Sterling Hayden. Kubrick uses some excellent lighting and camerawork, most notable in wonderful War Room scenes. Some of the shots are wonderfully composed, between shoulders and across the War Room table, General Jack D. Ripper outlining his theories while we look up from below. The scenes of the attack on the Air Force base are the forerunners of films like Full Metal Jacket and Saving Private Ryan with their shaky, handheld camerawork as if we're invading with the troops.

Some have argued that the film has aged along with the Cold War. It is certainly a savage critique on war and the confrontational politics and posturing of two barely concealed enemies. I think these themes are just as relevant today as they were at the beginning of the 1960s. Just for a moment imagine as the camera looks up at the dramatically lit face of General George W. Bush as he chews on a pretzel and says the following 'I can no longer sit back and allow terrorist infiltration, terrorist indoctrination, terrorist subversion and the international terrorist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious...bodily fluids.' It has a certain, awful sense of familiarity doesn't it?

If you're serious about watching film, this is one that you cannot afford to miss. A classic.

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.

Dr. Strangelove: A Masterpiece of Satire and Drama
Stanley Kubrick's "Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" is cited as one of the director's best films, and one of, if not the best satirical comedy in cinema history, and with very good reason.

Dr. Strangelove exceeds exponentially in many ways, the three main being the direction, writing and the unforgettable performances from George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden and of course, Peter Sellers.

Kubrick's direction is perfect, the film is perfectly paced, no scene overstays it's welcome and the editing and camera angles do their jobs greatly at conveying a time of nuclear crisis but at the same time remaining darkly humorous. One of the more obvious factors of the film is that it is shot and presented in black and white which works perfectly with the film, the dark representing the terror of the situation and the white representing the comedic side of the film. Kubrick also manages to assist in the comedic side of the film, he achieved this through using 'rehearsal' takes and allowing Peter Sellers to improvise. The level of film making is exquisite, Kubrick uses mostly steady camera shots when in the War Room, and hand-held camera shots when inside the B-52 bomber, he also frames each image with perfection and creates incredible compositions. He never cuts too often or ever drastically changes the angle, thus never confusing the viewer and allowing the scenes to flow. The B- 52 models on real life footage backgrounds may look dated, but oddly enough it still works well with the overall tone of the film, in fact it could be argued that it even adds a small comedic aspect to the film.

In my opinion, this film's writing was quite underrated, many people remember the genius unforgettable lines that were likely ad-libbed by Peter Sellers, but overall the film's dialogue and plot is incredibly well written. The plot goes that the general of an air force base goes mad and without-authority, commands a large number of B-52 bombers to attack their targets in Russia, and the men and President in the War Room, desperately attempt to prevent this from happening. This plot is outright brilliant and is executed brilliantly, there is no outright exposition in the dialogue, and any exposition there is, is not jarring or comes of as lazy at all. The film does an incredible job at creating an environment of sheer crisis, with George C. Scott's character explaining that there are very few options in resolving the matter, and the reveal of Russia's top secret 'Doomsday Machine' which adds an almost unbearable amount of tension to the film. The film reaches it's inevitable end of Nuclear Annihilation, after one of the B-52 bombers manages to hit one of it's targets, thus triggering the Doomsday Machine and ending all life on Earth. I found this ending not only to make sense, but also to fit perfectly into the film's tone, there is also a great comedic value to the end, with it coming so suddenly and playing classic music over the footage of many nuclear bombs detonating.

Overall, I hope it is clear that I see this as simply one of the best comedies ever made, or even perhaps one of the best films ever made. The film is incredibly unique and although the more satirical points of the film may not be quite as relevant now, they are still hilarious to experience. The film holds up incredibly well even with it's clearly dated visual effects and somewhat dated humour, but Peter Seller's performance alone will allow for this film to be seen as one of the funniest satires ever made even long after the events the film is poking fun at have ended. And even if you don't find the film particularly funny, you can still be in awe of the genius film making and incredibly suspenseful plot.
