Synopsis

Adapted from sci-fi novel Red Alert by Peter George, Kubrick’s tour-de-force of political satire feels unnervingly prescient in the context of current global politics. Set mainly within legendary production designer Ken Adam’s imposing war-room, Dr. Strangelove... charts an absurd but inexorable path towards nuclear oblivion that’s triggered when an unhinged American general believes the Russians have caused his impotency. With a razor-sharp script and dazzling performances, the film critiques America’s fixation on military might, and lampoons the men who sit in the seats of power. It’s a film about communication – or more accurately, the consequences of miscommunication.
