I love this movie and for a single reason: It tells a story with minimal exposition and simplicity. Peter Sellers plays his part with admirable restraint and the rest of the production elevates his performance. Sometimes I think that a good drama does not need multiple story arcs or fancy effects to resonate with audiences. This film shows the truth of that powerfully, while leaving it up to us (the viewers) to create meaning from what we have seen. The hold of the mass media over our collective imaginations has never been presented in quite such a funny way, with the possible exception of Paddy Chayefsky's Network.
