Mr. Kubrick is a bold man: he has taken a whole complex of America's basic assumptions by the shoulders and given them a rough shaking.

Take away the arch tone and deadpan ridiculousness, and the scenario is all too real.

The pre-eminent satire of cold-war paranoia, Dr. Strangelove is a hilarious and harrowing fable of systemised madness.

Dr. Strangelove does what so few comedies do today: it challenges us, provokes us, unsettles us while also making us laugh.

July 3, 2016
Even the ending of the Cold War couldn't dilute this uncompromising satire's immediacy, not so long as men continue to think with their missiles instead of their minds.

'Dr. Strangelove' may have worked as a serious thriller, but Kubrick knew better.
January 16, 2016
A slick satire of the cold war, and one that succeeds in brilliantly lampooning the hands that guide the world.
December 9, 2014

May 13, 2014
By a whopping margin, this is Kubrick's most radical film and greatest dramatic gamble.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
May 5, 2014
The blackest black comedy ever made by a major Hollywood studio, and one of the funniest handful of films made in English.
Full Review | Original Score: 10/10
January 28, 2014
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

One of the best, and funniest, screenplays ever written...
July 14, 2012

June 18, 2009
It's easily one of the director's best films of his somewhat controversial career.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
June 16, 2009
... like a morbidly sick Looney Tunes short with its cartoon heroes struggling impotently to keep hold of a hot potato.
June 16, 2009
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.
