Quite a big project back in the early 1990s.
Neat in story telling although which still stayed in the very old, conservative way.

very nice movie about the history and life of Stalin mixed up with a very good casting and solid performance from Robert Duvall...I'm surprised by how many people missed to see this great movie.

Honest depiction, Robert Duvall makes a good Stalin

From the election of the Bolshevik to Stalin's death, this movie follows the life of Stalin and the cast of politicians around him. It is not concerned with politics but the storytelling and essential events. An awesome depiction of a brutally cold yet charismatic Stalin by Duvall.

A brutal, comprehensive, creepy true masterpiece!!! Amazing acting of Julia Ormond, Robert Duvall, Bálint András and many more.

A rare to find gem. Not yet released on DVD, this HBO 2-part series from 1992 is one of the best played and most accurate portrayal of Stalin, with an amazing and extremely convincing performance by Robert Duvall. Recommended for history and cinema buffs.

A very one-dimensional and unconvincing look at one of the most evil people to have ever lived. Concentrates entirely on Stalin's dealings with the people around him, and ignores the history occuring at the same time. For example, the pact with Hitler to invade Poland is not even mentioned. World War 2, which I expected (and hoped) to take up a large portion of the movie, is glossed over.

Robert Duvall's performance is very unconvincing, especially for such a great actor. Wooden, stereotypical.

Not worth a watch, on any level. Fails as a human drama, fails as a history lesson.

A well made movie that successfully depicts Stalin's rule as a paranoid, and brutal, leader.
