AMI Showcase — Kubrick & Existentialism: Dr. Strangelove 

When: Tue., Nov. 19, 7 p.m. 2013
Price: Free
Yes, Stanley Kubrick has made his share of masterpieces, but this 1964 black comedy, screening in 35 mm(!) as part of Duke's "Kubrick & Existentialism" series, remains a how-the-hell-did-he-get-away-with-that work of gonzo genius. In adapting Peter George's straight-faced novel Red Alert, Kubrick teamed with George and Terry Southern for a twisted, downright madcap take on the Cold War. Kubrick also got Peter Sellers to play a triumvirate of roles: a British RAF officer, the president of the United States and the title role, an ex-Nazi scientist whose hand has a mind of its own. (If you can't catch this on Tuesday, the Colony in Raleigh will play it at its "Cool Classics at the Colony" selection next month.) —Craig D. Lindsey
