    This movie was released during the Cold War when tensions were running high between the US and Russia. The story is satirical. It uses many different tools. People today are still scared of nuclear weapons and war and always will be

    The movie is making fun of the government and the military simultaneously. It goes into the follies of politics and even makes fun of stereotypical American qualities. All in all it was an okay movie and is still applicable today.

    Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Love the Bomb and Stop Worrying is a great movie, a wonderful comedy, and an excellent example of satire. The movie, while it may have been written in the ‘60s many of its lessons still ring true today. T

    To conclude this is a wonderful movie poking fun at western government and military officials, as well as the overall fear and hysteria of the american people during this time. It shows how you should just relax and love your fellow man.

    This is a moderate Horatian satire about what would happen if the USA decided to launch an attack on Russia. There are many funny parts that take advantage of using irony and innuendos. It also relates to current day issues in many ways.

    This Horatian satire was good at pointing out the follies of the government. It used plenty of hyperboles with stereotypes. It still applies to today, since there is a nuclear threat. It was good at showing that nuclear war is serious.

    This classic satire targets military forces using humor to illustrate the ridiculousness of nuclear war with Russia. With an authoritative persona and frantic tone, this movie makes us rethink how we involve our country into other's issues.

    This movie was made in the middle of the Cold War. It is very satirical and focuses on pointing out the flaws of the government and nuclear war. It took a while to realize the deeper meaning, but I would definately recommend this movie.

    Dr. Strangelove pokes fun at the fact we can wipe out the planet, and the ones held responsible are idiots! I enjoyed the clever elements of the film but feel it's overrated. This satire isn't for everyone but it sends a powerful message.

    While Dr. Strangelove isn't my favorite movie, as a satire I love it. It’s witty and creative and over all very humorous if you know what is going on. Of course you do need to know a little bit about the cold war and what all was going on.

    Overall, the movie was intriguing because I wanted to know how the filmmakers were going to continue the movie. It included satirical pieces about the nuclear scare and how people were afraid a nuclear war was going to break out.

    Dr. Strangelove is a pretty good satirical movie. Using many different techniques, this film portrays what many Americans were thinking at the time, which was that the Russians were plotting every step of the way on how to destroy the U.S.

    Dr. Strangelove was a clever political satire that certainly stayed true to its time without becoming dated. It also exhibited one of the most interesting criteria of satire which is subtle irony, which was used in this film with mastery.

    Overall I believed that this movie was a very clever movie and pointed out the hysteria and fear that enveloped the world about nuclear weapons. It taught people to just relax and not worry about things that were way over their heads.

    Dr. StrangeLove is a film from 1964, which satirizes the nuclear scare from the Cold War. With the Cuban Missile Crisis just ending and the hydrogen bomb being a new and threatening weapon, nerves were running high through the whole movie

    Dr.Strangelove is a satirical film about the Cold War.Today this movie still relevant because we still have nuclear warfare as a threat. We always seem fast to draw a weapon which gets us into many problems.Overall, not a very good movie.

    This movie deals with the implications and side effects of nuclear war between Russia and the United States, while at the same time being very satirical and lax about the true horrors of war. It deflates the terror of death and destruction.

    Dr. Strangelove presents a frightening yet occasionally humorous inflation of our culture and politics, including Nazis, war fanatics, and incompetent rulers, during the Cold War that draws startling parallels to the modern world.

    The movie ending with everyone dying while a love song plays is very, ‘in your face’. The writers didn’t tiptoe around the fact the topic can be very morbid. The various targets of the story also contribute to it being juvenalian.

    A great "What If" comedy. Kubrick hit a home run in this satire of human stupidity and paranoia.
