Cold War '64 Double Bill

MUBI Special

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

Stanley Kubrick United Kingdom, 1964

“You can’t fight in here, this is the War Room!” Part 2 of our Cold War double bill is the gold standard for black comedy: Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece, which mixes all the paranoia of the day (plus 3 iconic Peter Sellers performances!) into a hilarious, deadly cocktail and watches it go boom.


Sidney Lumet United States, 1964

This weekend, we proudly present a classic Cold War double bill! Directed by Sidney Lumet (12 Angry Men) and dropped on a jittery public, Fail-Safe is the ticking Doomsday Clock as a straight-up thriller, stretched taut on the edge of Armageddon. Today, it’s a classic of claustrophobic suspense.
