Resumo: Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove: Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964) is the cinematic adaptation of Peter George’s novel Red Alert. This black comedy and political satire exposes the madness and dangers of the military use of nuclear energy that easily lead to the end of humanity. In this article I examine: a) the tone of the film used by Kubrick to expose the threat of an atomic holocaust during the cold war era; b) the narrative strategies used to represent science: the character of Dr. Strangelove, the significance of the war machines and the technological setting. My objective is to prove that this science fiction film denounces the risk of practicing science without conscience, by constructing a discourse of counterculture where madness, fiction and reality intelligently intermingle.
