Jericho Slim’s review:
War = Sex. That's the theme of Dr. Strangelove from it's first frame to its last. Dr. Strangelove is, of course, the great, absurdist dark comedy about the stupidity and futility of the Cold War and the concept of mutually assured destruction that led to the stockpiling of nuclear weapons.
This movie remains hilarious today, but I couldn't help but think as I was watching it that I was missing some of the jokes that a 1960s audience would appreciate. Obviously, I am viewing it a little out of context almost 60 years later.
Great film that gets better for me with rewatch.
