The death of Stalin
Hilariously cynical, I loved it

Stalin dies and chaos ensues. A horrific moment in history told in a way I never expected. Stalin’s committee struggled to maintain control and create a more positive change in the Soviet Union. From the opening scene I was sold. It flips from dark and grim to witty and hilarious in a matter of seconds. Honestly not everyone is going to enjoy The Death of Stalin but it’s a gem.

A truly brilliant script and wonderfully directed by Armando Iannucci. An excellent cast all round, particularly from Steve Buscemi and Jason Isaacs. They really can do no wrong. A word of warning, the laughs are not as frequent as the trailer may have portrayed but if you’re in any way into war comedy then do not miss this. Highly recommended and hello to Jason Isaacs.
