The Death of Stalin (2018, D: Iannucci) S: Buscemi, Tambor, Isaacs, Friend





In Cinemas Oct 20.

The internal political landscape of 1950’s Soviet Russia takes on darkly comic form in a new film by Emmy award-winning and Oscar-nominated writer/director Armando Iannucci.

In the days following Stalin’s collapse, his core team of ministers tussle for control; some want positive change in the Soviet Union, others have more sinister motives. Their one common trait? They’re all just desperately trying to remain alive.

A film that combines comedy, drama, pathos and political manoeuvring, The Death of Stalin is a Quad and Main Journey production, directed by Armando Iannucci, and produced by Yann Zenou, Kevin Loader, Nicolas Duval Assakovsky, and Laurent Zeitoun. The script is written by Iannucci, David Schneider and Ian Martin, with additional material by Peter Fellows.

This may be Iannucci’s weakest-written film, but it’s by far his best-directed one.

Saw this a week ago and really liked it. Funny as hell even if it felt like a “small” film.

Does anyone know why it got pushed to 2018?

A UK company made it and and released it in the UK last October. Maybe that's why it didn't get here until now.
