  • Dr. Strangelove, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

    1964. USA/Great Britain. Directed by Stanley Kubrick. Written by Kubrick, Terry Southern, Peter George. With Peter Sellers, George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden, Keenan Wynn, Slim Pickens. "I was talking one day with Alastair Buchan from the Institute of Strategic Studies and he mentioned the novel Red Alert, which was published in 1958. I read it and of course I was completely taken by it. Now Red Alert is a completely serious suspense story. My idea of doing it as a nightmare comedy came when I was trying to work on it. I found that in trying to put meat on the bones and to imagine the scenes fully one had to keep leaving things out of it which were either absurd or paradoxical, in order to keep it from being funny, and these things seemed to be very real" (Kubrick). NYFCC Best Director, 1964. 94 min.
