Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (Stanley Kubrick, UK, USA, 1964)

Dr. Strangelove seems remarkably fresh and undated - a clear-eyed, irreverant, dangerous satire...If movies of this irreverence, intelligence and savagery were still being made, the world would seem a younger place.

An insane United States Air Force general orders a first strike nuclear attack on the Soviet Union as the President of the United States and a War Room of advisers and Joint Chiefs of Staff frantiacally try to recall the bombers and prevent a nuclear apocalypse.

Sadly still-pertinent satirical black comedy directed, produced, and co-written by Stanley Kubrick, and staring Peter Sellers (in multiple roles), George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden, and Slim Pickens.
