About

Kubrick had already made one anti war film, Paths of Glory" (1957) but "Dr Strangelove" is often described as the greater film. He started off trying to make a serious film about nuclear war but gave up. Instead he made this hilarious political satire about the deadliest of subjects. It starts with a paranoid US General, J Ripper,  launching a nuclear attack against the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War.

Can it be stopped? Is this Nuclear Armageddon? 

Will the Bomb, the Pentagon, the National Security State, Mutually Assured Destruction, the US Presidency, the Military-Industrial complex ever recover from the sustained satirical attack that is Dr Strangelove? 

N.B. There is no Landmark Cinema in March due to Easter, next screening will be on Saturday 24th April - Film TBA
