The president doesn’t seem to know much on the situation and constantly needs feedback from his advisers, who put the blame on everybody else, the British officer was scared to get in a fire fight and also followed all English personality such as the scene where he has to keep putting money in the phone for it to work, the German scientist is thought to know everything but it turns out that he’s a Nazi.

3. What does Kubrick seem to be saying about the original motivations of war?

Everybody’s blaming each other on how the problem started and nobody wants to upset each others morals because its a sensitive situation.

4. What effect is created by the music and speech given by B62 pilot?

Its quite childish. The pilot dresses as a cowboy because he’s clearly from Texas and the music represents the crew and the pilot as careless because the music’s played lazy and not heroic.

5.Would the film have a different impact on the audience if it were in colour?

I don’t think it would imitate the feel of it being filmed in a old timeline because you feel as is your in the cockpit.

6. How does Kubrick manage to make Strangelove a comedy and thriller at the same time?

He uses the morals from the Americans, Russian, British and Germany and takes the piss out of the significant ones such as the Russian not caring and is more interested in women, The British obeying all the rules even thought they can be broken etc.

7. there’s one minute 24 seconds long shot. Can you find it?

the woman talking on the phone.

8. What does the movie tell us about the time it was created?

People with high statue seem to think that they have ultimate power and they think they can do what ever they want with it and they don’t seem to really care about the people below them.

9. How can we relate Dr. Strangelove to the global conflicts of today?

We still see the power the politicians have to create a war however nobody wants to press the button to start it and everybody’s on edge for that one rogue person to decide to much it.

10. How symmetry has been used to enhance the visual experience?

I thought the symmetry where the American leaders are sitting around the table was seen from this image it uses one point view imagery. You can see the president in the very middle of the screen(far of the table) and is focused by the light and the two men at the front of the table directing our action to the president.

11. What’s your personal response to the film (positive or negative)?

I thought the film was very cleaver and had a lot of satire, however I found it quite boring and slow because its properly not suited for my age and best suited for a more elderly audience, but from this i have took away the use of symmetry as this helps create focus on a subject and creatively interests the audience.
