On 17.5., the last day of the special “Bigger Than Life. Ken Adam’s Film Design” exhibition at the Museum für Film und Fernsehen (free entry the entire day!), we are showing Kubrick’s angry satire about the dangers of atomic war and the Cold War era fears DR. STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB (Stanley Kubrick, GB/USA 1964). US general Jack D. Ripper sees the world under threat from a Communist conspiracy and sets a fleet of B52 bombers in motion in the direction of the Soviet Union. The grotesque setting is emphasized by Ken Adams’ visionary film architecture. The bombproof briefing room beneath the Pentagon, the iconic war room, is brought to life with high-tech decor. Adams’ depiction of space via geometric forms finds its most famous expression in this center of power. (lm)
