Do not ride the bomb.

39. Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (Stanley Kubrick, 1964)

3 Things:

  1. “Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here! This is the War Room!” is a fantastic line.
  2. Seeing James Earl Jones as a young man is somehow quite bizarre.
  3. Slim Pickens is the best combination of a nickname and a last name this side of Dusty Rhodes.

On filmaffinity.com I gave the film 8/10. It’s funny, smart, well-shot, but upon first viewing somewhat underwhelming. At some point I am sure I will get it.
