To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Good to see the novelisation of this classic Cold War movie reprinted with a newly discovered outline on the origins of the eponymous Dr Strangelove character, written by the original book's author, Peter George, and new notes from his son David. This background sheds insight into a parallel character development of Strangelove, as the script moved towards what Kubrick ultimately termed "nightmare comedy", before the involvement of the screenplay's third contributor, satirist and hipster Terry Southern. The material also complements the director's own substantive annotations on Strangelove in the Stanley Kubrick Archive at the University of the Arts, London.
