Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The most shattering sick joke I've ever come across.
Fresh: Stanley Kubrick's blackest of black comedies.
Fresh: Stanley Kubrick's first genuinely original movie has been seen, reseen, dissected, and iconized, but a few sly truths about it have yet to be fully grokked.
Fresh: This landmark movie's madcap humor and terrifying suspense remain undiminished by time.
A review of the film, not how nice the director was.
Dr. Strangelove is an amazing work. Peter Sellers has three roles (he originally was supposed to have four, but physical injury limited him to three) and he pulls off all of them with comedic genius. The whole thing is a satire on nuclear war that is perhaps more biting and relevant today then it was when it was originally made. This film is not as crazy as some of Kubrick's other works, but it is every bit the classic that those films are. Highly recommended. Also, to the moron who gave this movie 4 stars instead of 5 simply because Kubrick made it and was a jerk, I have news for you: Mean people are likely involved with the making of every single movie ever made. Get over it. Review the film based on the merits of the film.
At last, this classic film comes to iTunes. This film has influenced popular culture for decades, and its messages still ring true today. Dr. Strangelove is an enduring film, and one that should be on anyone's list of rentals.
Perhaps the Greatest Film of all Time
Dr. Strangelove is a classic by every sense of the word. The plot is realistically crazy, the characters are superbly acted, the direction is astounding, and the cinematography is bold and dramatic. Sterling Hayden and George C. Scott are particularly impressive. This film is a prime examle of American fears and rationalities of the 1960s and is a must-see, especially for the younger generations that did not experience the cold war.
