Proclaimed the funniest political comedy of the year (The Daily Beast), The Death of Stalin delivers a brutally executed parody of Cold War Russia. 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. Written and directed by EmmyÂ® Award winning and OscarÂ® nominated Armando Iannucci, Rolling Stone calls the film a brilliant satire from a crack ensemble (including EmmyÂ® and Golden GlobeÂ® winner Steve Buscemi, Simon Russell Beale, Andrea Riseborough and Michael Palin). Proof that comedy, like politics, is all in the execution.
