Dr. Strangelove: Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

Overview

Wit, Humor and Satire Film Series
Free First Wednesday event

Director Stanley Kubrick has taken a nihilistic story and infused it with political satire that urges the audience to consider the frailty of our political and military systems. Dr. Strangelove: Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964) uses satire to explore the absurdity of the nuclear arms race between countries, and the way humans perceive safety. This impending doom and irony give the audience a glimpse into the irrational thoughts of the powerful men chosen to preserve our nation. (95 minutes)
