Peter Sellers stars in this Kubrick classic.There wasn’t any credits after the film so i’m not sure how many characters he played but there’s at least 2.The film is about a military sergeant who’s a bit nuts,he has conspiracy theory’s about fluoride in the water and has a gattling gun hidden in his golf bag in his office,who single handily launches a nuclear war against the Russians.He issues a code which activates some 30-40 B-52’s directive of attacking Russian and dropping bombs all over the place.The president tries to stop it but doesn’t know the 3 digit cancellation code.It sounds like serious stuff right?But as the film goes on you realize that this is a dark humor,the film gets more and more daft as it nears its climax and i have to hand it to sellers he has his moments.I don’t think I’ve seen a comedy directed by Kubrick so far and it’s not all that bad,it just takes a little while to get into it.
