"I do not avoid women, but I do deny them my essence."
I had to take time when deciding my quote for this review because there's just too many perfect lines. The one I went with is said by General Jack D. Ripper, who's name by no mistake sounds like the infamous Jack the Ripper. He is solely responsible for the events that transpire in this comedic masterpiece as he plots to start WWIII in order to save our precious bodily fluids. Dr. Strangelove is one of my favorite comedies. It's the perfect political satire, where the US politicians and war generals are forced to deal with a dire situation that will no doubt lead to nuclear annihilation. The catch; our characters are motivated more by what's in their pants. Now this isn't to say Kubrick's black and white classic is a sex comedy. Its far from using any blatant sexual humor. If you know Kubrick, you know that his filmography has explored violence and sexuality side by side. Dr. Strangelove is perhaps his most important exploration into these topics but with a healthy dash of politics thrown in as well. Even if political humor isn't your thing watch this for Peter Sellers, who plays 3 different characters wonderfully. This is an hour an thirty minutes of genius. I promise you'll find something to laugh about.
