Dana Gould presents "Dr. Strangelove, or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb"

Fifty years on, Dr. Strangelove, or: How I learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Bomb is still as fresh, daring, absurd and amazing as it was at the dawn of the Beatles. Filmed at the height of the Cold War (with the Cuban Missile Crisis still fresh in the public’s psyche,) Stanley Kubrick guided three equally pitch-perfect comedic performances from Peter Sellers: the straight-line British office, the nebbish U.S. President, and the daffy German nuclear scientist. Adding to this tour de force of directing, editing and acting are the equally ridiculously brilliant turns from George C. Scott and Sterling Hayden, who were rarely ever better than they were here. Comedian/actor/Simpsons scribe Dana Gould loves this film to pieces — just as much as we do. Come share in the timeless awesomeness. Dana Gould will be here at the Cinefamily to introduce the film, and participate in a Q&A afterwards!
Dir. Stanley Kubrick, 1964, 35mm, 95 min.
