(Stanley Kubrick, US 1964, 93 min.)
Apocalypse Now! What’s so funny about mutually assured destruction? A lot, it turns out. In the hands of Stanley Kubrick, co-screenwriter Terry Southern, and a cast headed by Peter Sellers (who does triple-duty in three very different roles), our nuclear nightmare becomes a pitch-perfect balance of comedy, commentary, and Cold War terrors.
