A well-written and extremely smart political satire. In fact, it’s so smart that I don’t think I fully understood it and I think I’m gonna need a rewatch to fully appreciate it, as is the case with other Kubrick films. That’s definitely not a bad thing though because I think it speaks to Kubrick’s brilliance and how challenging his films are. Also, Peter Sellers is fucking phenomenal.
