continued

The film's main theme — that paranoia can be a greater menace than the dangers that provoke it — has considerable contemporary resonance. When you see President Bush arrive via navy jet on an aircraft carrier and emerge dressed in a flight suit and looking archly virile, or when you hear him say things like "Bring 'em on," it's easy to imagine you're watching excerpts from a remake of Kubrick's masterpiece.

Dr. Strangelove completes a week's run at Madstone Theaters on Thursday, October 2.    (end of article)
