The Death of Stalin – Film 57 – 106 minutes – 15

Director – Armando Iannucci

Main Cast

  • Olga Kurylenko
  • Jason Isaacs
  • Andrea Riseborough
  • Jeffrey Tambour
  • Steve Buscemi
  • Rupert Friend
  • Michael Palin

 

How can you explain a comedy and a horror all rolled into one?  The cast list suggests there were going to be laughs, the era and situation in Russia gave a level of realistic horror.  It’s a film I’m glad I saw, but I’m not too sure what to think about it.  A clever portrayal of a shocking time in the history of a volatile country.
