An exceptional 'making of' documentary.
13 March 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of four documentaries included on the DVD of extras for "Dr. Strangelove". One focuses on the political context for the film, one on the films of Stanley Kubrick, one on the work of Peter Sellers and the final one (this film) a so-called 'making of' movie exploring the creation and marketing of the full-length film. Of these four films "Inside" seemed to be the best, as it was very comprehensive and couldn't have been much better.

"Inside: 'Dr. Stranglove'" is made up of what such films usually consist of--interviews, footage from the feature, archival interviews and still photographs. While none of this was atypical, it made the film tougher to make in that many of the principals involved in making the film were deceased--some very prematurely (Peter Sellers) and some due to old age and ill health (the director, Stanley Kubrick, Sterling Hayden, George C. Scott and others). Because of this, I really could not give the featurette a score of 10--though otherwise it was excellent and well worth watching--particularly if you adore "Dr. Strangelove"---and it's hard not to! Well worth seeing.
