Based on the comic books The death of Stalin by Fabien Nury and Thierry Robin.
Originally released as a motion picture in 2017.
Wide screen.
Special features: Dictators, murders and comrades... Oh my! ; deleted scenes.
Olga Kurylenko, Paddy Considine, Adrian McLoughlin, Simon Russell Beale, Jeffrey Tambor, Steve Buscemi, Michael Palin, Andrea Riseborough, Rupert Friend, Jason Isaacs, Tom Brooke.
When the tyrannical ruler Stalin dies, his hapless inner circle scrambles to come up with the next evolution of the revolution, but it's clear everyone is really out for themselves. Proof that comedy, like politics, is all in the execution.

COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Great dark comedy submitted by arguzman on August 6, 2018, 2:30pm A+ political satire that had me laughing way more than I should have given the context. Highly recommend for anyone with a dark sense of humor.

lol submitted by numbah6 on August 29, 2018, 11:15am lololololo

Saw it a second time yesterday, liked it better than the 1st time. submitted by Tassos on March 13, 2020, 9:34am BUT was it too difficult to select an actor to play Zhukov who looked the part? IE, SHORT, BALD and barrel-chested? Was it sooooo difficult to change the actor they selected so he looked even remotely like the real thing???

Satire at it's best submitted by caburr47 on June 29, 2020, 10:03pm Armando Iannucci has done it again. I love that some of these actors like Jason Isaacs and Rupert Friend who are known for their drama, showcase amazing talent and comedy chops in this film. The sad thing is that most of these events were probably true.

strange and weird submitted by mandevil on January 20, 2021, 1:16pm Steve Buscemi at his best. Irony and absurdity hard to know how historically accurate it is.

Putin on the hits submitted by tarascon on June 12, 2023, 11:05am Grimly hilarious.
I forgot to wear Depends before watching!
