Death of Stalin, The

March to hilarious victory behind the banner of our glorious leader in satire Armando Iannucci (The Thick of It, Veep) as he applies his gift for backstage political chaos to Soviet Russia and the power vacuum created by the demise of dictator Joseph Stalin.

The USSR is thrown into chaos by the death of the iron-fisted, absolute ruler Stalin. With the exulted leader lying on the floor of his Moscow summer retreat “in a puddle of indignity”, every toady, schemer and apparatchik is scrambling to figure out who is going to be a part of the new world order and inveigle to end up on top of the pack, hopefully without getting shot first. Hopefully.

With a cast including Steve Buscemi, Jeffrey Tambor, Simon Russell Beale, Jason Isaacs, Andrea Riseborough, Michael Palin, Rupert Friend and Paddy Considine all at the top of their game, THE DEATH OF STALIN is a viciously funny delight. Rise up, comrades!
