News & Interviews for The Death of Stalin
Critic Reviews for The Death of Stalin
A riotous farce of doublespeak and plotting laced with moments of bitumen-black horror.
Its application of [Iannucci's] signature barbed comic voice to such grim history (executions are a constant source of gallows humor) packs its own punch.
It will more than satisfy Iannucci's fans at arthouses; here's hoping we don't have to wait another eight years to see the director's next film.
The Death of Stalin marks the first instance in which Iannucci has applied his style to real-life figures, and it's as though he has crafted a historical foundation for the rest of his work.
Audience Reviews for The Death of Stalin
The acting is superb and the comedy is stellar, but The Death of Stalin feels somewhat artificial at times - and suffers from some noticeable instances of amateur filmmaking, which is a shame considering how masterful many elements of the film are.
