(1964) dir Stanley Kubrick w/Peter Sellers, George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden, Keenan Wynn, Slim Pickens [95 min]
Although a political satire from almost 50 years ago, Kubrick’s comedic look at the Cold War remains hilariously timeless. From the Brigadier General’s obsession with preserving his ‘essence,’ to the intimate-yet-dysfunctional relationship between the President and the head of the USSR, to the elaborate set of miscommunications and technical glitches that lead to the end of mankind, screenwriters Peter George, Terry Southern, and Kubrick brought us a boldly absurd film that rings true today probably more than we are comfortable with. And remember, there is no fighting in the War Room!
