Mein Fuhrer! I can WALK!!


Another movie review illustration, this time, obviously, for "Dr. Strangelove." I saw this film again a few years ago at the Detroit Art Institute's film theater with Matt Feazell, and I swear to God we were the only ones in the theater who were aware that it was a comedy! The people around me were so stone-quiet I started feeling self-conscious about laughing... almost.

The Detroit Film Theater, though, is the place to go for art films here in the 313, so if you're ever in town with nothing else to do, check 'em out.

Sean,

I have co-workers just like that audience. One of them actually said something like "Dr. Strangelove is one of those black comedies. It's not something you'd laugh out loud at." I was aghast. I think about that terrific phone conversation between the President and the Russian Premier and the General's facial reactions to it and I'm practically in tears with laughter.

By the way, was this the showing at the DFT with a print made from Kubrick's personal print where he personally photographed every frame to make the pristine print to be distributed? That was a gorgeous print with great detail.
