Dr Strangelove

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

Peter Sellars, George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden, Slim Pickens

An insane general triggers a path to nuclear holocaust that a War Room full of politicians and generals frantically tries to stop.

I suppose this is a 'cult' film, meaning that many people have seen it more than twice, and are able to remember characters and quote their lines.

I watched it again last night, and found it no less depressing than it was the last time I saw it, despite the statement from the US government on the top of the film that the events depicted could not possibly happen. However, the acting is excellent, particularly that of Peter Sellars, in the three parts he plays.
