Synopsis

This is the saga of two psychotic generals: Joint Chief of Staff “Buck” Turgidson and Air Force Strategic Commander Jack Ripper, who orders a bomber squadron to attack the USSR, triggering a Soviet secret weapon, the “Doomsday Machine”, a diabolical retaliatory missile system.

Our take

Incontestable winner of both the Best Film and Best British Film BAFTA Awards in 1965, this is the gold standard for black comedy. Kubrick’s masterpiece mixes all the paranoia of the day—plus an iconic performance by Peter Sellers in 3 roles!—into a hilarious, deadly cocktail and watches it go boom.
