Dr. Strangelove

VSF: When I first saw the film ‘Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb’ back in 1964, it never occurred to me that General Jack D. Ripper was anything more than the fertile imagination of Stanley Kubrick. Now I’m wondering if in fact his character reflects something deeper that happens to some in power, something that infects the mind and unhinges the judgement. Watch this classic scene as General Ripper ‘locks down’ Group Captain Lionel Mandrake (Peter Sellers) and waits for The Bomb. A brilliant film! Perhaps relevant to our times…
