Stanley Kubrick - Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964)

Sellers excels in Kubrick's cold war masterpiece which captures the fear, paranoia and surrealism of the era. Totally set in the war room, at Burpleson Air Force Base and on board Major Kong's B-52 the world laughs whilst the world is doomed. Turgidson calls 10-20 million dead acceptable and when the doomsday device is activated lobbies the president, Merkin Muffley, for funds so that the Soviets don't create a mineshaft gap. If it were today, I think General Ripper would turn to Viagra first before launching a pre-emptive strike on the Soviets. The definitive World War 3 movie. You will be sorely missed Mr. Kubrick.
