Dr. Strangelove-Katrina Heikes
Dr. Strangelove was a pretty good film in my mind. I found it interesting how Kubrick turned a serious matter, like the cold war, into a comedy. I enjoyed how Kubrick did this, because I like comedies and I feel as if the majority of the population would choose a comedy over a serious drama film to go see. And since this film was a very popular one of its time, I think most people agreed with me. I thought that technology definetly had a role in this film. Communication was portreyed very strongly throughout the film. I found it interesting how when Mandrake is trying to get a hold of the President but can't because he doesn't have anough money for the pay phone. This would never happen in our day, since mostly everyone has a cell phone. Overall I thought this film was very interesting to watch and it portreys the military very well and the use of technology, especially communication very good as well. I can see why this film was so popular and considered an important film.
