It's just a coincidence that my funniest movies star Peter Sellers. Dr. Strangelove (1964) is insane. Clinically insane. And hilarious. Especially General Jack D. Ripper's speech about flouridated water and denying women his essence. I used to see this film in repertory screenings, and it never failed to floor me. The Party (1968) could almost be the story of my life. How hard can you push a one-joke idea? Blake Edwards's most sustained comedy about the movie business.
