REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Thu., Aug. 12, 1999
More lethal than a nuclear-waste dump, Kubrick's komedy at least kills us with laughter. Thirty-five years after its making, this film seems even more insidiously knowing and "on target" than – and undoubtedly the most hilarious – anti-war statements ever put to film. See it before the world ends.
