BorisBalkan’s review published on Letterboxd:
Finally I have watched it. Setting in the middle of the cold war the screenplay is incredibly realistic even with the amount of comedy that in the mix simple kills it. The different view on what security means was the matter and this pellicula bring us close to a disaster that fortunately never happened in the real world.
I usually write my reviews after only seen a movie once, but this time I decided to go for an immediate second view. There is so much going on in this movie that focusing only on the story could be a mistake. Absolutely a must watch.
Fun fact : a screenplay was draft for a sequel (should have been set in the underground) and Kubrick wanted Terry Gilliam to direct it. Not a fan of the sequels in general but this one would have been fun.
Ps: it's not allowed to fight in the war room!
