The President of Russia Vladimir Putin on the recommendation of film Director Oliver stone looked one of the most famous films of Stanley Kubrick, “Dr. Strangelove or: How I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb”. According to the President, for all his “fabulousness” the film gives an idea about the real dangers.
Stone during the filming of a documentary about Putin figured out that the Russian leader had not seen Kubrick’s masterpiece about the threat of “nuclear Apocalypse”. In the end, the cult tape of the 60-ies the President looked for a company Director.
“With all the fabulousness of what we see on the screen, there are things that are quite serious and warning about real dangers”, — quotes Putin’s words after watching RIA Novosti.
According to the President, some of the things Kubrick guessed even from a technical point of view, adding that “since then, little has changed.“
“The only difference is that modern weapons systems have become more complex, and this idea of weapons of retaliation, the inability to control them from a certain point — they are all quite important for today”, — said Putin.
Earlier media reported on a curious case of the box from the DVD with the Kubrick film, which stone gave Putin after viewing. As it turned out, the disk Director forgot to remove from the player. The head of state jokingly called it “typical American.”
In the film “Dr. Strangelove or: How I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb”, filmed by Kubrick in 1963, talks about the threat of “nuclear Apocalypse” caused by the conflict between the USSR and the USA.
