Produced during the height of the Cold War, this iconic masterpiece is a darkly comedic critique of nuclear weapons and the apocalyptic political tension between the U.S. and the Soviet Union during the 1960s. Shot in black-and-white and gorgeously composed, Dr. Strangelove balances Kubrick’s serious visual style with the improvisational comedy of Peter Sellers, who hilariously plays three of the film’s main characters. This biting satire remains a timeless and necessary critique of the U.S. war machine. In English and Russian with English subtitles. Contains mature content.
