Soaking It In: Dr. Strangelove

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the BombDr. Strangelove (1964) by Stanley Kubrick: 96 minutes, 8.7 IMDB, 100% fresh tomatoes

Ahhh! A breath of fresh air after that 400 Blows nonsense. I didn't take a lot of notes about this film; I just gathered it in.
My notes:
  • 1:36:00 Best. Ending. Ever.
The cousinnephew summary:
  • You have to give a lot of credit to the actors.
  • Film obviously had a pretty good budget.
  • (About the camera work:) Liked how they shot the tasks in the plane, like when they flipped a switch. Also liked the shot when Ripper was talking with Mandrake; view from below of Ripper making him look powerful, with Mandrake looking more meak.
