    Editorial Reviews

    DR. STRANGELOVE IS A BRILLIANT BIT OF CELLULOID GENIUS AND A TRUE CLASSIC in every sense of the word. Nominated for four Academy Awards® including Best Picture (1964), Stanley Kubrick’s black comedy about a group of paranoia-inspired, war-happy generals who manage to initiate an “accidental” nuclear apocalypse, is horribly frightening, delightfully funny and surprisingly relevant to this day.This is the saga of two psychotic generals: Joint Chief of Staff “Buck” Turgidson (George C. Scott) and Air Force Strategic Commander Jack Ripper (Sterling Hayden), who orders a bomber squadron to attack the USSR, triggering a Soviet secret weapon, the “Doomsday Machine”, a diabolical retaliatory missile system.Peter Sellers portrays a trio of men who attempt to avert this catastrophe: British Captain Lionel Mandrake, the only person with access to paranoid Gen. Ripper; U.S. President Muffley, whose best attempt at diverting this disaster depends on convincing a boozed-up Soviet Premier it’s all a

    This movie is truly Kubrick's magnum opus, and one of the best films ever made.

    The Film:

    Kubrick's best film? Tough to say. 2001, A Clockwork Orange, and Spartacus are pretty darned good. One of the best dark comedies of the 20th Century? Easily. Probably the single best. Consistently, some times uproariously funny, "Dr. Strangelove" is an indisputable classic. It expertly weaves the paranoia and fear of the period with phenomenal comedic performances, to both funny and chilling effect. Peter Sellers is absolutely stunning in this film, as is George C. Scott. The nuclear farce escalates and escalates throughout the 90 minute run-time, ultimately culminating in... well, I won't spoil it.

    Simply put, this is one of those films everyone should see before they die.

    The Blu-Ray:

    This is a tough disc to review. The movie is so incredibly good that it might be blinding to the flaws in the presentation. And flaws there are.

    The first one that will strike anyone who's seen this film before on home video is that this film is not presented in the 1.33:1 "academy ratio." Instead, it is cropped to a 1.66:1 ratio which is very close to today's widescreen TVs, with *very* slender black bars on the sides.

    Now, I'm as big a fan of widescreen images as the next guy. But I'm an even bigger fan of seeing everything the director intended me to see, i.e. the original aspect ratio of a piece of film. Apparently, when Sr. Strangelove was transferred to laserdisc, Kubrick told Criterion that the film is supposed to switch from 1.33:1 to 1.66:1 aspect ratios, depending on scene. In the war room, for instance, the lighting above and some binders below the 1.66:1 frame were intended to be seen. Since this disc is fixed at 1.66:1, the image never opens up to show us this information. Is it story critical? No.

    It was a time of turmoil in the world. There was the threat of a nuclear war between the United States and Russia, how fatalistic Americans were during the Cuban Missile Crisis, the US involvement in the military conflict in Vietnam was starting to heighten and tensions were high. Director Stanley Kubrick wanted to make a thriller on a what if there was a nuclear accident.

    Using Peter George's novel "Red Alert" (written back in 1958) as a source to write his film adaption, his knowledge of nuclear war after reading over 50 books on the subject, after the Cuban Missile Crisis started to become a growing concern with Americans, Kubrick wanted to give a unique perspective and not make things so grim. He immediately decided to change the screenplay which was more of a serious thriller into a black comedy.

    Needless to say, his decision to do so has made "Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" a classic film that was ahead of its time back in 1965 and has so much relevance in today's modern world. The film was well-written as the film is a satire on the political system, sexual themes (which the names and the characters and their role in the film plays a big part of the film's theme and their manhood) and most importantly the Cold War.

    The film's storyline and even what went on behind-the-scenes to create the film are two very interesting stories and now, fans and new viewers who have been curious about this classic film and what went on behind-the-camera can experience it all on this 45th Anniversary Special Edition via High Definition on Blu-ray.

    If you don't know what the movie is about, there are other sources and reviews, so I won't go into it here. Dr. Strangelove is 50 years old and the fun and message still holds up. The Blu-Ray version is great, but if you are interested in it, buy it from Amazon.UK and not the U.S. Amazon.

    The Blu-Ray was sold by Amazon in early 2013 for $9.99 and shortly went out of print and unavailable. Private companies soon listed the Blu-Ray for $75 to $100. I just bought it through Amazon.UK for $10.92 plus $3.99 in shipping (from The Netherlands) and watched it last night; it was a beautiful print. The UK version is the same June 16, 2009 Release Date as the U.S. version and it is Region Free, so it will play on any Blu-Ray player. Between the UK and the US versions, the cover is the only thing that is different; both versions are the full 95 minutes in the 1964 theatrical release.

    The $14.91 sure beats paying $80.00!

    DR. STRANGELOVE: OR HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB still makes me laugh. Watching it on Blu-ray last night reminded me once again what a fantastic movie this is. Stanley Kubrick was a genius, and he made sure to cast fellow geniuses Peter Sellars and George C. Scott in his film. For my money, the film has Peter Sellars best performances ever. Though I had read that he was unhappy with the over-the-top takes used, George C. Scott is sheer perfection...and incredibly funny. And who better to play insane General Jack D. Ripper than Sterling Hayden?

    This is very much the perfect movie. Great script (thanks to Kubrick, Peter George and Terry Southern). Great cinematography, thanks to Gilbert Taylor (the man who would later shoot STAR WARS). Great production design, thanks to the legendary Ken Adam. Great performances, as mentioned above. Plus Great direction, thanks to Maestro Stanley Kubrick.

    Blu-ray HD transfer is not perfect, yet still pretty good. Was pleased that the film was presented in HD-ready full-screen 16:9. Black and white cinematography looks beautiful, even with slight aberration (unnatural grain) evident under certain lighting conditions.

    Kubrick pushed cliches to the limit in this movie making it hilarious. I could say so much more.
