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

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.

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

Stanley Kubrick's first genuinely original movie has been seen, reseen, dissected, and iconized, but a few sly truths about it have yet to be fully grokked.

The film is always saying something, and a viewer would have to be deaf and blind not to recognize the targets of the sarcasm.
