Vintage Sundays: Dr Strangelove + exclusive short Kubrick film - Picturehouse at Science and Media Museum - Bradford

Stanley Kubrick Considers The Bomb, a new short film produced and directed by Matt Wells, will be screened exclusively in cinemas as part of this release. 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 Kubrick responded to society’s widespread concern about nuclear war and transformed it into his irreverent comic masterpiece.A brilliant atom-bomb farce, endorsing with suspense and dark comic aplomb Kubrick’s characteristic vision of human fallibility and stupidity. It’s famous for Peter Sellers’ triple role, but George C. Scott, Peter Bull and Sterling Hayden give equally superb performances, the last as the unhinged air force general who launches a war of Mutually Assured Destruction.
