Putin: the Kubrick film about the confrontation between the USA and the USSR warns about the real dangers
WASHINGTON, June 13. /Offset. TASS Anton Cranks/. The President of Russia Vladimir Putin believes that the Stanley Kubrick film “Dr. Strangelove or: How I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb” in 1964, with all the fabulousness of the story, warns about the real and serious dangers.
About this Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview with the Director Oliver stone, who based on a series of conversations with the Russian leader made a film, which will premiere June 13 and is preceded by a screening of a number of fragments.
“There are things here that really make some things to think about, — said the President after watching the movie. Because with all the fabulousness of what we see on the screen, there are things that are quite serious and warning about real dangers”.
Putin stressed that Kubrick “some things are guessed even from a technical point of view.” “The fact is 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, and the inability to control them from any point, — they are all quite relevant to the present day. It became even more difficult and more dangerous”, — said the President.
The Director advised the President to watch this movie. Stone gave the Russian President a box from under the disc, which is seen as Putin after a while, opened it, was empty. “The typical American gift,” — said the Russian leader, after which he gave the disc.
In the movie “Dr. Strangelove or: How I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb,” in a satirical way talks about the confrontation between the US and the USSR, and about a fictional conflict between nuclear powers.
Putin and the stone has held several long conversations on the basis of which was filmed four-part documentary. The premiere begins in the US on June 13 and will end June 15. While aired only a few fragments of the interview.
