CREATURES OF THE NIGHT- Dr Strangelove Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
Peter Sellers, George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden
Dir. Stanley Kubrick
95mins US/UK 1964

As Dunkirk opens at the Picture House it feels fitting to revisit one of the great anti-war films. Kubrick’s masterpiece was one of several he would direct which would grapple with the subject of war including Paths of Glory and Full Metal Jacket. Humanity, and the absence of it, is a consistent theme in each but with Dr. Strangelove above all others there is a sense of the ridiculousness of war as we find ourselves laughing when crying would make so much more sense.

President Merklin Muffley and Group Captain Lionel Mandrake are embroiled in a race against time after General Jack D. Ripper launches an unauthorised nuclear attack on the Soviet Union, not knowing that any attack will trigger the 'doomsday device' designed by ex-Nazi scientist Dr Strangelove, which will cause a global Armageddon.
