This IS the Cold War classic. Stanley Kubrick without the pretensions of "2001," a movie I liked when I was younger but not so much now. Meanwhile, this movie keeps growing on me...the feeling of impending doom that much of the Cold War era was about.
This is such a low-key look at what Chicago was really like in 1968. The director was clever enough to get the cameraman to shoot the Guardmen at City Hall and a couple of the demonstrations. The closing scene is priceless.
