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

Stanley Kubrick Großbritannien, 1964

aurkihnowe's rating of the film Dr. Seltsam, oder wie ich lernte, die Bombe zu lieben

A (dammit!) still timely engagement in black comedy, (thanks to 45 and his "bigger" nuclear powers), presages just how insanely absurd the principles of Mutually Assured Destruction are...when the power to destroy our beautiful planet is in the hands of jaded (often psychotic) "men", the outcome doesn't seem so distant, anymore...more effective at exemplifying nuclear menace than "Watchmen" (the movie, not the book)
