DR. STRANGELOVE

(1964, Stanley Kubrick) When Sterling Hayden’s nutcase General Jack D. Ripper – who gave him the nuclear codes? – unleashes H-Bomb-bearing B-52s into Soviet airspace, General Buck Turgidson (George C. Scott), Group Captain Lionel Mandrake (Peter Sellers), and President Merkin Muffley (also Sellers) struggle to stave off Doomsday, with the eponymous Strangelove (still Sellers) in the wings. DCP. Approx. 93 mins.
2:50, 7:05

“[KUBRICK’S] MOST PERVERSE PROVOCATION. By a whopping margin, this is Kubrick’s most radical film and greatest dramatic gamble.”
– Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out 

“The movie that for this writer’s money is Stanley Kubrick’s best.” 
– Robert Levin, AM New York

“Still one of the great adolescent pranks perpetrated in movies.”
– J. Hoberman

“Devastatingly funny – and at the same time nightmarishly frightening in its accuracy. A prophetic look at the insanity of superpower politics which, like Orwell’s 1984, has entered the lexicon of modern political discourse.”
– James Monaco

“Absolutely unflinching: relentlessly perceptive of human beings to the point of inhumanity…Kubrick’s precise use of camera angles, his uncanny sense of lighting, his punctuation with close-ups and occasionally with zoom shots, all galvanize the picture into macabre yet witty reality.”
– Stanley Kauffmann

“What makes the picture so funny, terrifying and horribly believable is that everyone in the film really has learned to stop worrying, as smokers do about lung cancer after living with the statistics for a bit.”
– Penelope Gilliatt

“A film alive with daring.”
– David Thomson

SEVEN DAYS IN MAY

(1964, John Frankenheimer) Cold War paranoia hits a fever pitch when Army Intelligence Colonel Kirk Douglas stumbles upon General Burt Lancaster’s plot to nix a U.S.-Soviet nuclear disarmament treaty by toppling peace-loving President Fredric March. Written by Rod “Twilight Zone” Serling. 35mm. Approx. 118 mins.
12:30, 4:45, 9:00

“Frankenheimer's fascination with gadgetry […] is used to create a striking visual metaphor for control by the military machine. Highly enjoyable.”
– Tom Milne, Time Out (London)
