Stanley Kubrick tackles the cold war through pitch black comedy and a brutalising look at life in the Marines.
Kubrick’s pitch black, unfailingly funny masterpiece has always felt perhaps too terrifyingly close to the truth of the Cold War. When a rogue US General decides to strike the first blow it appears an automated Russian defence system will ensure the end of the world, unless the bomber wing can be recalled. Features 3 separate stellar performances from Peter Sellers.
This film will be proceeded by a short film 'Stanley Kubrick Considers The Bomb' (2019 6mins).
The film is a 4K restoration.
