Two Line Reviews - #294

Movie: Dr. Strangelove (or) How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1954)

Plot: When a general wrongly sends aircrafts on an attack on Russia, the entire political fraternity of the USA tries frantically to avoid the operation. All aircrafts are reverted back but all hell breaks lose when one of them is found to be in the Russian territory.

  • Stanley Kubrick shows his atrocious humour sense in this terrific mocker of a movie! Absolutely enjoyable ride this..
  • With the pretentious plot, all the film does is attack the polished war tactics and nuclear ambitions of USA and Russia, and this it does to satisfying effect.
  • The multiple roles played by Peter Sellers, the hyper General Turgidson & the mockery on silly senseless formalities make this a terrific watch. So does the hummable background track.
Mocking at epic,insane proportions!
