Stalin Is Dead! And with The Soviet Union's top job now up for grabs, the men in Stalin's council are about to enter an 'interview' process unlike any other. With the prospect of absolute authority over the nation within grasp, in the days that follow, devious plotting and farcical backs tabbing are fair play, and one man will emerge with supreme power over the USSR.

Highly Disappointing - The Death of Stalin review by JS

Against much opinion I found this film to be essentially very boring with a Monty Python/Daily Mail view of Russia and actually quite offensive to all those millions of people who must have suffered immeasurably under Stalin's rule. OBVIOUSLY I know it is a black comedy, and therefore to be taken as such, but essentially it spins out one joke-what it actually must have been like to be there as a member of the "Government" when Stalin died and how to react in such bizarre circumstances- and spin this out for however how long. The West unfortunately has a completely one sided view of Russia and Eastern Europe most of the time and all films like this will do is to play to the prejudices and stereo types of "little Englanders" in reinforcing their brain dead views.

Black Comedy - The Death of Stalin review by JD

Superb movie. Very clever take on an historic event, the death of Stalin. Very, very funny, the cast are great ( special mention of Michael Palin ) and full use of black comedy to highlight the atrocities of the Regime.

Shockingly horrific and funny at the same time - The Death of Stalin review by AL

To be able to create a comedy about such a violent and shocking time is quite a task and they have succeeded. I think having the actors using whatever accents they liked is stroke of genius and perfect casting. I may need to buy this one for repeat viewing.
