The Death of Stalin
Armando Iannucci | France/UK | 2017 | 106m | 15
The internal political landscape of 1950’s Soviet Russia takes on darkly comic form in a new film by writer/director Armando Iannucci. In the days following Stalin’s collapse, his core team of ministers tussle for control; some want positive change in the Soviet Union, others have more sinister motives. Their one common trait? They’re all just desperately trying to remain alive. One of the best - and funniest - films of the year!
