Stanley Kubrick's "Dr. Strangelove: Or How I learned to Stop Worrying and Loved the Bomb" is a bitter satire in black comedy form. Paranoid Brigadier Jack D. Ripper of the US Army commands his officers to drop a nuclear bomb on Russian soil as he feels that the communists are hatching a sinister plot to destroy the bodily fluids of Americans by fluoridizing water. Despite many efforts to recall those planes by executive officer Lionel Mandrake and US President Merkin Muffley, actions move ahead once set in motion. The world teeters in the brink of nuclear holocaust. Despite the gloomy ambience of the story, Kubrick successfully manages to introduce comedy and is able to make his actors perform their best. Noted comedian Peter Sellers plays three roles in the movie, each with equal conviction. George C. Scott as General Buck Turgidson, Sterling Hayden as Brigadier General Jack D. Ripper, and Slim Pickens as Major T. J. Kong among others portray the lunacy of arms race and the inherent foolishness of hawkish army men. Kubric holds the notion "nuclear deterrence" into question and mercilessly deconstructs it. A must-watch movie.
