The Death of Stalin (2017)
AroView: Outrageous “comedy of terrors” from the creator of IN THE LOOP and VEEP, set in Moscow in 1953, where Stalin has just dropped dead and his cronies are fighting over who gets to be the next tyrannical dictator. An audacious, rapid-fire farce offering a biting critique of bureaucratic dysfunction, performed by a top-notch cast. Banned in Russia!
“Makes real-life horrors the source of hilarity - and it is hilarious - while never making light of the insanity that inspired it.” ~ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic.
