The Cold War-era black comedy which slowly forms a transition point for Kubrick from a relatively “naturalistic”, yet quite stylized, canvas to the strange land of dreams, fairytales, and even insanity... This relentless political satire which starts with a paranoid Air Force general’s plan to launch a nuclear attack on the USSR, balances the sense of absurdity and madness that pierces through its every aspect, from screenplay to performances, with hyper realistic set designs that comprise the heart of its black & white cinematic world. In this “nightmare comedy” (the director’s own description), adapted very loosely from Peter George’s novel Red Alert, Kubrick operates the camera in the mock documentary scenes in addition to directing and writing.
