Dr. Strangelove

Cinematheque

One of history's most famous comedies that is still relevant today, this 1964 political satire was directed by the legendary Stanley Kubrick, and stars Peter Sellers, George C. Scott and Slim Pickens. The shape-shifting Sellers plays three wildly different roles: Royal Air Force Captain Lionel Mandrake, timidly trying to stop a nuclear attack on the USSR ordered by an unbalanced general (Sterling Hayden); the ineffectual and perpetually dumbfounded U.S. President Merkin Muffley, who must deliver the very bad news to the Soviet premier; and the titular Dr.Strangelove himself, a wheelchair-bound presidential adviser with a Nazi past.
