HOW THIS POLITICAL HOT POTATO OF ITS TIME EVEN MANAGED TO SEE THE LIGHT OF A COLD WAR DAY IS BEYOND ME . . . . THE C.I.A, THE K.G.B AND MI6 MUST'VE BEEN FULLY PISSED AT BEING MADE TO LOOK THE TWITS THAT THEY WERE WHILE PLAYING A GLOBAL GAME OF NUCLEAR DESTRUCTIVE CHESS . . . . A BLACK COMEDY SO COMPLETE, SO INCISIVE THAT AS A HISTORY LESSON ON WHAT NOT TO DO AS FAR AS INTERNATIONAL DIPLOMACY IS CONCERNED IS MORE ACCURATE IN ITS DEPICTION THAN REAL LIFE.
Peter Sellars played three key roles, Wing Cmndr Mandrake, the U.S President, Murkin Muffley and last but by no stretch of twisted immagination least, Dr Strangelove himself, an over the fucking top portrayel of an ex Nazi super scientist, many of whom were the brains behind the NASA program and weapons development . . . . stunning performances from Keenan Wynn, George C Scott, Stirling Hayden and Slim Pickens bring this hyper-real bit of cinematic brilliance to scarier than fuck life.
Oh yeah, this is cutting edge shit, even fifty years down the road to peace, love and understanding, if you haven't seen it, especially those under 30-40, get your hands on a copy and take a trip back to the height of the Arms Race, Mineshaft Gaps, Mutually Assured Destruction, Precious Bodily Fluids and so much more . . . . this is stuff you have to know about, snap quiz tomorrow, study hard !!!!
