Kubrick‘s movies are always pretty amazing, and today being the sad anniversary of the dropping of an atomic bomb that devastated Nagasaki, I was reminded of this movie I’m posting, Dr. Strangelove. It’s full of metaphors and messages, which are fairly relevant to those who wonder what the purpose of war is? War’s not pretty, and some of the images from this video of a song named after the plane that dropped the huge bomb, show footage of the Enola Gay.
Here’s a little clip of the movie, featuring the comic dark doctor scientist, played by Peter Sellers, hilariously. Goodness knows, it’s such a grim topic, that we need a laugh, to cheer us up, sometimes, when we think of war. Humour is a wonderful medium for tackling difficult topics, and it’s a masterful movie.
Right. Seated comfortably? Buckle up, then, buttercup, because we are ready to hit the ground, or at least the link to the full movie, below. It’s the usual drill. When the ads window pops up, kill it, and press play in the movie window, and it’s bombs away.
Hope you enjoyed the movie. It beats war any day. Wishing you a peaceful Sunday, with many more peaceful days to follow.
