The other day, someone asked me what was my favorite Stanley Kurbrick film? I answered "Dr. Strangelove." It might be strange to answer when he made so many movies.

I picked "Dr. Strangelove" because it was a comedy about a dark subject matter, Nucleur War. It was a comedy about the end of the world and the funny part about it, are the people behind the push-buttons and the egoes that go along with it.

The film has three mini stories, one is about an attack on an air force base. Peter Sellers played four roles. One was Group Captain Lionel Mandrake whose in one scene, shot a coke-cola machine. Another scarino is in the Pentigon, as General Jack T. Ripper (Sterling Hayden) send planes to nuke the Soviet Union. Another is onboard the plane as Slim Pickins as he and his men flew closer to the target. In one of the most memorable scenes in film history, Pickins was saddled ontop of the nucleur missle as it heads towards the ground.

Sellers played Strangelove, the title character of the film. He sits in the wheelchair and shoots his right hand up like he was greeting Hilter.

The film is satire at its best. The film is powerful on the subject matter, but still funny. "Dr. Stranglove" is must-see cinema at its best.
