Chicago Tribune
This landmark movie's madcap humor and terrifying suspense remain undiminished by time.
Full review
by: Michael Wilmington
The New York Times
The ultimate touch of ghoulish humor is when we see the bomb actually going off, dropped on some point in Russia, and a jazzy sound track comes in with a cheerful melodic rendition of "We'll Meet Again Some Sunny Day." Somehow, to me, it isn't...

Dr. Strangelove Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964)
Smart, great social commentary and funny as hell. It is hard to believe this movie was made in the 60's. I can only wonder how much courage it must have taken to bash the military of the USA and the USSR in the middle of the cold war. After all...

There are very few perfect movies. I love "Citizen Kane" but sometimes Orson Welles' performance is just a shade too hammy and winking for my taste. "Psycho" is awesome but it has that babbling wrapup speech by the psychiatrist. Even my personal...

ItÂ’s unfortunate that a movie like Dr. Strangelove wouldnÂ’t be appreciated if theatrically released today. Long, no-cut scenes and dialog drive this black-comedy filled with brilliant performances from Peter Sellers, Peter SellersÂ… and Peter...

Dr. Strangelove: the ultimate black comedy?
Everything is just right about Dr. Strangelove, everything makes sense. That is: it all makes sense the Peter Sellers way. Everybody who knows the name Peter Sellers usually associates it with the Pink Panther films he did after Dr. Strangelove,...

Parts of it are kind of slow
Dr. Strangelove comes from that olden era where plots, like, unfolded at a pace less than breakneck. I grew up in a bit of a different kind of world where the sweeping Spartacus has been replaced by Passion of the Christ. You gotta have that gore,...

As somebody born nearly 20 years after this film was made, it's difficult to understand what society was like around the Cold War and nuclear arms race, however the film is still relatable today... simply with a few minor changes (W. Bush as Ripper,...

Even if you hate Peter Sellers, the trick Kubrick pulled was a re-transmission of War of the Worlds or The Great Dictator. Forget that Darth Vader is in it. Don't shut it off after Slim rides the bomb. Sit Close Up To The Front. Soak In It. See This...
