Dr. Strangelove with Larry Groce: Must See Cinema

About Must See Cinema:

Each month, a different curator picks a classic and engaging film that they feel a strong connection to. Movies grab people in a lot of different ways, and our curators picked films that they can speak about passionately. Whether it is because the film made the curator think about something differently, or the curator thinks it is underrated, or simply think it is so great that it deserves a screening, we will show the movie they pick. On the first Thursday of the monthp is a special night, when the audience has a chance to hear from the curator and talk with her or him about the movie in a post-film discussion.

About September's film, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb:

Stanley Kubrick’s painfully funny take on Cold War anxiety is one of the fiercest satires of human folly ever to come out of Hollywood. The matchless shape-shifter Peter Sellers plays three wildly different roles. Finding improbable hilarity in nearly every unimaginable scenario, Dr. Strangelove, or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb is a subversive masterpiece that officially announced Kubrick as an unparalleled stylist and pitch-black ironist.

About September's curator, Larry Groce:

Larry Groce is one of the founders of West Virginia Public Radio's Mountain Stage and host/artistic director since 1983. He was also executive director of FestivALL Charleston from its beginning in 2005 until 2015. Before (and during) those times, he has been a singer songwriter and recorded twenty-four albums, had a top ten single and been nominated for a Grammy Award. His most recent project is a musical version of the Daniel Boyd film, “Paradise Park” in collaboration with Danny, commissioned by Theater West Virginia. Larry moved to Barbour County, West Virginia in 1972 and now lives with his wife Sandra and their two daughters, Virginia and Bonnie, on Charleston’s East End. He is no expert on cinema but films have a strong effect on him and he very much respects their beauty and power as an art form.
