The Death of Stalin

The Death of Stalin

Average Rating:
Rate this:
"Director Armando Iannucci (Veep) depicts the power grab that ensued after Joseph Stalin died of a stroke in 1953. The Soviet Union's leaders soon dive headlong into a farcical but ruthless game of bargaining, deception, and backstabbing. Adapted from the graphic novel of the same name by Fabien Nury and Thierry Robin. Steve Buscemi, Jeffrey Tambor, Michael Palin, and Jason Isaacs star."

Amusing and well-acted farce about events surrounding the death of Stalin with a focus on individuals in Stalin's inner circle and the struggle for Soviet leadership after Stalin's death. The scriptwriters appeared to know a lot about the true subject matter, but there were many substantial historical inaccuracies included presumably for entertainment's sake.
