Dr. Strangelove: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (PG 1964)
Directed by Stanley Kubrick, starring Peter Sellers
Running Time: 96 mins.
This Oscar-nominated satire features deranged American general Jack D. Ripper (Sterling Hayden), who leads an attack against the Russians that sets the stage for Armageddon. In a series of virtuoso comic performances, Sellers plays an impotent U.S. president, a harried British captain and an ex-Nazi bomb maker in Kubrick’s hilariously nihilistic send-up of wanton warmongering.
