Written and directed by Stanley Kubrick, Dr Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb is a dizzying black comedy following a group of inept politicians as they attempt to recall a group of bombers and avoid a nuclear disaster. Blending biting political satire with an unsettling absurdist tone, the film continues to be one of the greatest cinematic representations of war by highlighting the surreality and ridicule associated with mass conflict. It may be over 50 years old, but when we consider the state of our current political landscape, Dr Strangelove remains essential viewing.
