Dr. Strangelove: or
How I Leaned How to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. It occurred to me how this movie is brilliant and so relevant today. We have so many gloom and doom predictions – 2012, killer viruses, global financial meltdown, terrorism, etc, etc, etc.
Kubrick captured the paranoia of the 50s and 60s perfectly. Many of the same fear based behaviors I see now happened back in the 50s – underground bunkers selling for big bucks, buying gold, and stocking up on ammo, canned goods and water. Tin foil hats abound.
I wonder what a modern day version of Dr. Strangelove would look like.
I purr therefore I am.
