This is another difficult one for me as I have so many ‘favorites’–definitely one in each genre–but this film defines so many aspects of my personality that I have to give it special mention. Dr. Strangelove is a film that takes a deadly-serious concept (total nuclear annihilation) and turns it into the most tongue-in-cheek, madcap, screwball satire possible. The entire premise is absurd, yet eerily plausible and the execution is pure Kubrick brilliance!
If you have not had the opportunity to watch this classic, drop what you’re doing and go watch it. Now.
Seriously. You never know if you’ll have another chance.
