An incredible comedy that had me glued to it throughout. Also made a strong point... In black and white which may put some off, but I would still highly recommend it to all.

One of the greatest movies of all time. Defines the genre of dark comedy, an incredible anti-nuclear weapons film, and some great performances. A must-see.
