The Death of Stalin on IMDB
In the midst of all the Russian tension, in view of Russian revisionism, this bit of comedy may be just what we need.
I am quite certain that this film is going to be excoriated by the Russian government, written about in the harshest possible terms in all the propaganda rags, and denigrated by all the blooming fools known as ‘useful idiots’.
I, however, intend to enjoy the heck out of the movie. I fully intend to laugh at Russia, with Russia, and in spite of Russia.
