Death of Stalin
(2017) [15] 1 hour 46 mins

Director: Armando Iannucci
Cast: Steve Buscemi, Simon Russell Beale, Jeffrey Tambor

The one-liners fly as fast as political fortunes fall in this uproarious and wickedly irreverent satire.

When the tyrant Joseph Stalin drops dead in Moscow in 1953 his parasitic cronies engage in a frantic power struggle to be the next Soviet leader as they bumble, brawl and backstab their way to the top.

Combining palace intrigue with rapid fire farce this audacious comedy is a bitingly funny takedown of bureaucratic dysfunction performed to the hilt by a sparkling ensemble cast.

“Superbly cast and acted with icy ruthless force” (Peter Bradshaw – Guardian)
