...a decidedly underwhelming entry within Kubrick's increasingly spotty body of work...

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

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.

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

The final word on the Cold War... the defining text on a subject so overwhelmingly horrible that all you can do is laugh.

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