    "Gentlemen, you can't fight in here. This is the war room!"

    "It would not be difficult, Mein Fuhrer. Nuclear reactors could... I'm sorry Mr. President."

    Hilarious as hell!

    An insane general starts a process to nuclear holocaust that a war room of politicians and generals frantically try to stop.

    Stanley Kubrick is one of my all time favorite director. The reason I love him is because his films are based on Human behavior and are character-oriented. Dr. Strangelove is no exception to that. It's a black comedy that makes us laugh and think at the same time. Peter Sellers did surprise me as he played three characters in the film all at the same time. Kubrick captured the political crisis so wonderfully that you just can't help but laugh. He ridicules the system and makes the whole cold war sound a joke. But he doesn't forget to show us the real face of all the politicians and the crazy military figures therein. After this film, Kubrick said goodbye to comedy and left only the "black" part in his later films. And even today, Kubrick's joke is fresh because this political nonsense and hunger for power still exists... A great movie from a lost, visionary director. A must see black and white classic.
