The Death of Stalin

Dir. Armando Iannucci. UK, 2017. 1h 47m. Starring Jason Isaacs, Steve Buscemi, Andrea Riseborough, Jeffrey Tambor, Paddy Considine, Rupert Friend, Simon Russell Beale, Olga Kurylenko, Michael Palin, Paul Whitehouse.

Plotting and paranoia reign at the Kremlin as the Soviet Union’s hierarchy jostle for supremacy following the death of their leader. A riotous black-comedy written and directed by Armando Iannucci (In The Loop).

'The Death Of Stalin is superbly cast, and acted with icy and ruthless force by an A-list lineup. There are no weak links.’ ★★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

‘The film is uproariously funny but painfully close to the bone in a world where once again the lunatics have taken over the asylum.’ Lisa Mullen, Sight and Sound Magazine
