50th Anniversary!

(1964) dir Stanley Kubrick w/Peter Sellers, George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden [95 min; TBD]
Despite being a 50 year old political satire, 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 and the elaborate set of miscommunications and technical glitches that lead to certain doom, 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’s no fighting in the War Room!
