ABOUT THE FILMS

 

DR. STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB, 1964, Sony Repertory, 93 min, Dir: Stanley Kubrick

Stanley Kubrick’s black comedy masterpiece features a gallery of unforgettable comic grotesques, including Sterling Hayden’s fluoride-hating general, George C. Scott’s oversexed Commie killer, and the brilliant Peter Sellers as the befuddled U.S. president, as well as the veddy British commander Mandrake and the maniacal Dr. Strangelove. Slim Pickens (BLAZING SADDLES) plummets his way into comedic history. “Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here, this is the war room.”

Format: 35mm


FOUR LIONS, 2010, AGFA, 112 min, Dir: Christopher Morris

What THIS IS SPINAL TAP did for heavy metal and DR. STRANGELOVE did for the Cold War, FOUR LIONS does for the modern face of terrorism. Starring a hilarious Riz Ahmed, Chris Morris’ FOUR LIONS is a funny, thrilling comedy that illuminates modern jihadism through the prism of farce and commits to the idea that laughter is better than killing.

“You laugh until the laughter turns to ashes in your mouth. And then you laugh some more.” – A. O. Scott, New York Times
