In 1994, Roger Ebert said it best : “Seen after 30 years, “Dr. Strangelove” seems remarkably fresh and undated — a clear-eyed, irreverant, dangerous satire.” In 2018, Stanley Kubrick’s classic black comedy from 1964 still seems as relevant as ever. With an inspired screenplay by Terry Southern and unforgettable performances by Peter Sellers (in three roles), George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden, Keenan Wynn and Slim Pickens.

Alfred Hitchcock’s 1943 B&W thriller, “Shadow of a Doubt,” is regarded as one of his masterpieces. A small-town girl (Teresa Wright) gradually develops doubts about a beloved uncle (Joseph Cotton) who seems to harbor terrible secrets.
“Peels back the…sincere innocence of small-town life to reveal the gullibility and the naivete underneath” (The New Yorker)
NR: 108 minutes
From 1951, and featuring music by the Gershwins, incomparable dancing by Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron and lavish production numbers, this is one of the great movie musicals. Kelly plays a struggling artist whose up-and-down romance with Caron culminates in a sumptuous ballet set to the title composition.
” ‘American…’ has many qualities…, not least its famous ballet production number, and there are other production numbers, set in everyday Parisian settings, that are endlessly inventive in their use of props and locations.” (Roger Ebert.com)
NR: 115 minutes
