Dr. Strangelove introduced by Eric Schlosser


Dr. Strangelove, or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb 

Introduced by Eric Schlosser, and followed by a book signing

Dir. Stanley Kubrick. 1964, 94 mins. DCP. With Peter Sellers, George C. Scott. Stanley Kubrick’s brilliant evocation of cold war nuclear paranoia takes the form of absurdist black comedy. It struck just the right manic, irreverent, sexually charged tone, creating a comic masterpiece that was also one of the seminal counterculture works of the 1960s. In a 2014 New Yorker article, Eric Schlosser demonstrated, stunningly, that “almost everything in Dr. Strangelove was true.” Schlosser will introduce the Kubrick film, and then talk about his book Command and Control and the documentary it inspired, as well as screen clips from the film. A book signing will follow the event.
