Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
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.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
It's easily one of the director's best films of his somewhat controversial career.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
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.
| Original Score: 5/5
Sound funny? It is.
| Original Score: 4/4
Dr. Strangelove (1964) is filled with great comic performances.
The film is always saying something, and a viewer would have to be deaf and blind not to recognize the targets of the sarcasm.
A Duck Soup for the Cold War era.
| Original Score: 5/5
Black comedy Kubrick classic for smart teens+.
Endures as one of the finest political satires.
The shameful, criminal wrongs depicted in this document from the past are with us today.
Masterful and highly original
The final word on the Cold War... the defining text on a subject so overwhelmingly horrible that all you can do is laugh.
[VIDEO ESSAY] "Dr. Strangelove" pokes fun at the idea of "mutually assured annihilation" and the dubious concept of "nuclear deterrents."
| Original Score: A+
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.
It remains that Dr. Strangelove is an extremely funny movie today.
... like a morbidly sick Looney Tunes short with its cartoon heroes struggling impotently to keep hold of a hot potato.
Not only is the movie wickedly funny, it's a subversive anti-war film that shows just how easily a conflict could erupt and the end of the world be brought about.
Perhaps Kubrick's most perfectly realised film, simply because his cynical vision of the progress of technology and human stupidity is wedded with comedy.
If there never were another satire of war, you'd think this one would have single-handedly stopped the whole mad business.
Stanley Kubrick's 40-year-old satirical polital-comedy about the end of the world is especially disturbing as one ponders world events at present.
