Review: Dr. Strangelove

This film highlights the brilliance of Peter Sellers. If you don't know who that is, he played Inspector Clouseau in the Pink Panther movies. This film was made in the cold war, in black in white (even though this was after the time of black and white). Sellers plays 3 parts in this movie: Assistant to Jack D. Ripper, the President of the United States, and the best character ever, Dr. Strangelove: A wheel-chair bound German scientist. Overall, the jokes in this movie were funny and Peter Sellers was brilliant. A few problems I had with this movie: That Dr. Strangelove does not get enough screen time, even though the movie is named after him... and there are long periods in the movie that aren't funny. Overall, the movie was good. I give it (4/5).
