Dr. Strangelove is a brilliant satire that pokes fun at the bomb scare and is still amusing by today's standards.

Not Kubrick's best, but even then a wonderfully filmed and written satire.

Great satire about egocentricity and war. With a pessimist ending that just get better the black comedy of Dr. Strangelove. One of the best comedys of misunderstood, that show the unforgettable multiple faces of Peter Sellers and a terrific work, also, by Stanley Kubrick.

An intelligent satire which only Kubrick could have made, with an acid, hilarious dialogue and magnificent performances by Scott and Sellers - who basically improvises as three different characters and makes you wish he had also played the cowboy major as he was supposed to.

Dr Strangelove is part of the vast collection of Stanley Kubrick's greatest films, and goes down, as the greatest film about the cold war and nuclear scare, which the world has ever seen, combining comedy and a real fright perfectly.

The beauty of Stanley Kubrick is that I can't really think of any film of his that I've seen that I don't love thoroughly. No matter what genre he was dabbling in, it always seemed to be heads and tails above everyone else. Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and L...

Dr. Strangelove is one of those movies that gets deeper and funnier with time. It's not just hilarious but it's as terrifying as any film ever made.
It somehow makes gut wrenching suspense out of a collection of one dimensional stock characters played with panache and cracker...

A classic film that's humour could never have the same effect if a film maker attempted to do something similar. One of the greatest black comedy film's of all time if not comedy films all together. Dr. Strangelove is a witty, satirical, hilarious film that invented the suspense ...
