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
It's not a record, but this is Dr. Strangelove's third DVD release in five years. This 40th anniversary edition adds another disc, keeping the extra content of the previous editions while adding three new segments, but not much of interest (especially for Kubrick fans). The most significant contribution is from former Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, channeling his work from The Fog of War. The movie boasts a newly created 5.1 DTS track that is very invigorating but not needed for a movie recorded in mono with minimal sound. The excellent picture presentation is same as on an earlier disc. --Doug Thomas
Great flash back movie. You have to remember this was made at a time when things in the world were very unsettled - the atom bomb was still terrifying stuff.Published 6 hours ago by Dave S

One of the Great classics. Peter Sellers is great in 3 roles. I lived through a time when this would not have been thought too far fetched.Published 1 day ago by Paul C. Aaron

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

The reason it's so expensive is because it's out of print in the US. You can, however, get the UK version (it's region free) for around $15 including shipping from Amazon UK.
