So, later this summer
I am going to have a bunch of people over to watch a movie in my backyard on a Saturday night (I am borrowing a portable movie screen and a dvd projector). I want to show a classic that is worthy of discussion afterward, but given the pacing of some older movies and the short attention spans of many of my friends, I want it to be something really engaging and not too terribly long. At this point, my #1 candidate is Dr. Strangelove
. Any other suggestions?
