Stanley Kubrick Considers The Bomb is a new short film that takes us inside the mind of one of the greatest film directors of all time. Produced and directed by Matt Wells for Park Circus, and with contributions from those who knew Kubrick best, including Katharina Kubrick, Jan Harlan (Kubrick’s Executive Producer and brother-in-law) and journalist and author Eric Schlosser, the film considers how he responded to society’s widespread concern about nuclear war and transformed it into his irreverent comic masterpiece Dr Strangelove or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love The Bomb. Stanley Kubrick Considers The Bomb (5 mins, 33 Secs) Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964) is a BAFTA Award-winning (Best Film 1965) black comedy about a group of war-eager military men who plan a nuclear apocalypse. Through a series of military and political accidents, two psychotic generals - U.S. Air Force Commander Jack D. Ripper (Sterling Hayden) and Joint Chief of Staff “Buck” Turgidson (George C. Scott) - trigger an ingenious, irrevocable scheme to attack Russia’s strategic targets with nuclear bombs. The brains behind the scheme belong to Dr. Strangelove (Peter Sellers), a wheelchair-bound nuclear scientist who has bizarre ideas about man’s future. The President is helpless to stop the bombers, as is Captain Mandrake (also played by Sellers), the only man who can stop them.
