By a whopping margin, this is Kubrick's most radical film and greatest dramatic gamble.

The blackest black comedy ever made by a major Hollywood studio, and one of the funniest handful of films made in English.

Because of its uncanny insight and frighteningly prescient satirical edge, Dr. Strangelove is a document of its time and also timeless. It held onto its relevancy by being bitter, cynical, and thinking absolutely the worst of people.

[VIDEO ESSAY] "Dr. Strangelove" pokes fun at the idea of "mutually assured annihilation" and the dubious concept of "nuclear deterrents."

Dr Strangelove is one of Stanley Kubrick's many masterpieces, one of the greatest films about the Cold War and one of the greatest comedies ever made.

It's easily one of the director's best films of his somewhat controversial career.

... like a morbidly sick Looney Tunes short with its cartoon heroes struggling impotently to keep hold of a hot potato.

Dr. Strangelove's status as the movie that confirmed both Stanley Kubrick's reputation and the arrival of beat-sick irreverence can no longer be retracted.

Kubrick nos presenteia com uma pérola de humor negro que critica acidamente as guerras e a mediocridade dos homens por trás destas.

Like most of his work, Stanley Kubrick's deadly black satirical comedy-thriller on cold war madness and its possible effects (1964) has aged well.

The whole thing is a bit too contemptuous of our defense system for my comfort and taste, wrote NY Times critic Crowther, showing that Kubrick's dark satire was so ahead of its time that critics didn't know what to make of it.

It's as startling today as it was then. Catch it now before it becomes too relevant to be funny again.

'Purity of essence'.... Superbly crafted satire that's neocon fresh to this day.

Perhaps Kubrick's most perfectly realised film, simply because his cynical vision of the progress of technology and human stupidity is wedded with comedy.
