Patrick Sullivan Dan Chelotti English 112 5/3/07 Critical Review Dr. Strangelove is filled with satire of our army, our commanders and our foreign policy, but there is one part that is blatantly pointing out how our leaders and decision makers are nothing more than children playing grown-up roles. Throughout the movie, while in the war room, Bucky Turgidson is constantly crying out to the rest of the senior military leaders and decision makers to “Look at the big board!” Immediately this struck me as odd because of the vocabulary that Turgidson uses. Anyone in his position as a general would probably not refer to the big screen displaying all of the planes and their positions relative to U.S.S.R in that manner. If there were a specific name for the board such as Global Air Positioning System or something fancy like that, which I’m sure there was, he would have used its full name instead of just saying “the big board.” By using these words it makes Turgidson seem young and naive.
