The possibility of nuclear war has never been more caustic and chilling, yet bitterly funny, than in director Stanley Kubrick’s “apocalyptic comedy,” Dr. Strangelove. It was made after Kubrick’s controversial Lolita in 1962 and before his groundbreaking 2001 in 1968. The screenplay was adapted by Kubrick, Terry Southern and Peter George based on George’s serious novel, Red Alert. In a world whose fate is controlled by buffoons, Dr. Strangelove — which features Peter Sellers as three characters — becomes even more relevant with each passing year. Brilliant in every way.
