The Death of Stalin

The Death of Stalin delivers a brutally executed parody of Cold War Russia. When the tyrannical ruler Stalin dies, his hapless inner circle scrambles to come up with the next evolution of the revolution, but it’s clear everyone is really out for themselves. Proof that comedy, like politics, is all in the execution.

Movie Reviews:

  • Mex5150: An interesting, but somewhat worrying docudrama look at the United Kingdom if Comrade Corbyn ever came to power.
  • Gimly: Pretty genuinely funny, which I was not expecting. A great one for me and my roommate with a hammer and sickle tattoo to watch together.

    _Final rating:★★★ – I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
