Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

The Younger Son selected Dr. Strangelove to be tonight's Family Film Festival movie. We've seen it before -several times. There's a trailer here.

The film is on Roger Ebert's list of Great Films, and he reviews it here and here, saying that "Kubrick made what is arguably the best political satire of the century, a film that pulled the rug out from under the Cold War by arguing that if a ``nuclear deterrent'' destroys all life on Earth, it is hard to say exactly what it has deterred." calls it "Timely and timeless satire".
