Dr Strangelove, Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying & Love The Bomb

Source https://macbirmingham.co.uk/event/4k-film-dr-strangelove?spektrix_bounce=true

Through a series of military and political accidents, two psychotic generals - U.S. Air Force Commander Jack D. Ripper (Sterling Hayden) and Joint Chief of Staff "Buck" Turgidson (George C. Scott) – trigger an ingenious, irrevocable scheme to attack Russia's strategic targets with nuclear bombs. The brains behind the scheme belong to Dr. Strangelove (Peter Sellers), a wheelchair-bound nuclear scientist who has bizarre ideas about man's future. The President is helpless to stop the bombers, as is Captain Mandrake (also played by Sellers), the only man who can stop them…

This special 4K screening of Stanley Kubrick’s 1964 satirical masterpiece also includes a new short film produced and directed by Matt Wells entitled Stanley Kubrick Consider The Bomb. With contributions from those who knew Kubrick best, including Katharina Kubrick, Jan Harlan (Kubrick’s Executive Producer and brother-in-law) and journalist and author Eric Schlosser, the film considers how Kubrick responded to society’s widespread concern about nuclear war and transformed it into his irreverent comic masterpiece.
