Art in the Form of Film: Dr. Strangelove (1964) with Paul Marino

October 16, 5:45 pm - 9:00 pm

Movie Night at The Hub:

Art in the Form of Film with Paul Marino

Dr. Strangelove (1964) 
Friday, October 16, 5:30-9pm 

Released during the height of the cold war, this film was instantly immersed in controversy. Dr. Strangelove is what you might call a scary comedy. Funny because of the great comedic antics of Peter Sellers, who plays three different roles, and scary because the plot revolves around a general who goes rogue and launches, without presidential approval, a nuclear bomb. The hotly debated question thus raised by the film was whether it was actually possible for a single unstable individual to launch such an attack. To this day, the question still hangs in the air like a giant mushroom cloud. But why get all anxious worrying about such a nightmare, when instead Sellers’ inventiveness can set you laughing at the absurdity of a full-on nuclear war? Instructor Paul Marino will introduce the film, raise questions to ponder and host a post-viewing discussion. Movie Night sponsor: Tina Pritchard.
