About The Death Of Stalin
Emmy award-winning and Oscar-nominated writer/director, Armando Iannucci, absolutely kills it with The Death of Stalin. We watch mass-murdering Soviet dictator, Joseph Stalin, suffer a fatal stroke, but his staff, having been told never to disturb him, leave him for several hours before calling for help. With his closest colleagues and advisers also too terrified to make the wrong move for fear of enraging him, they eventually do nothing. Iannucci masterfully blends dark humour about an authoritarian regime and farcical comedy performed with perfect timing.
