Strangelove is full of humor, jokes and utter ridiculousness; even enough to rival a Monty Python film, but some people can't get through Kubrick's realism to see the humor.

From the phallic imagery of the opening scenes, the beautiful camera shots, the perfect musical accompaniment, the razor sharp satire, to the cold but hilarious tone of the film; no one filmmaker helped me grow as a film watcher more than Kubrick.
Strangelove or: How I Learn to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, arguably one of the most controversial and yet brilliant anti-war films of all time.
