Very strange satirical comedy starring Peter Sellers.
A Luxembourg like country, through a series of follies, gains global domination with a bomb that can blow up 1,000,000 square miles. Engage weird off kilter British humor.
Some salient commentaries on the gaffs of political wars, but all in all feels like there’s a laugh track missing.
Peter Sellers is great, and a young Jean Seberg is alluring, but this movie, like the bomb, spoilers, is a dud.
There is one line about how everyone hoped after WWII the world would be a better place, but turns out it isn’t, that really rang true and poignant.
1959 speaking to 2020.
Recommended for Peter Sellers, Jean Seberg, and some of the driest gags I’ve seen.
