Director Stanley Kubrick’s 1964 satire about an unhinged US general Jack D. Ripper who orders a first strike on the Soviet Union was intended to shame and ridicule those within our government and military who were fringe, extreme, and dangerously ridiculous. Fast forward to 2017 and it seems Kubrick’s vision didn’t go far enough— but it’s also quaint that he could never imagine a nutjob character possessing the highest office of the nation. Nonetheless, Strangelove remains a viciously smart treatise on narcissism, incompetence, and fear, in addition to being just a brilliantly crafted technical work. So, go get your Strangelove on and take the edge off by pretending for two hours that it’s all “just a movie”— until you walk back out into the damning sunlight of reality.
