How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Bomb
Loved the movie!
Sellers in one of his most memorable roles, and of course, I need not elaborate on my admiration for Kubrick. I wonder how a truly black comedy would be received in Tamil. Visu and Mouli in their theatrical dramas have made excellent emotional comedic pieces. Cho Ramasamy has had his satires. Kamal Hassan, being one of the best spontaneous comedic actors I have seen, would be great in such an effort. Despite the tremendous potential, most of our best Tamil comedies (especially in recent years) have been merely verbal. Other than Singeetham Srinivasa Rao, not many people have been able to make good use of the genius of Crazy Mohan. In Strangelove terms, that leaves a rather large �comedic gap�.
Kubrick would hate Columbia home video for the DVD. Bad video mastering: lots of scratches on the print; and the picture contrast, poor in Kubrick standards.
