THE DEATH OF STALIN

May 4 – 10
THE DEATH OF STALIN

The one-liners fly as fast as political fortunes fall in this uproarious, wickedly irreverent satire from Armando Iannucci (Veep, In the Loop). Moscow, 1953: when tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin drops dead, his parasitic cronies square off in a frantic power struggle to be the next Soviet leader. Among the contenders are the dweeby Georgy Malenkov (Jeffrey Tambor), the wily Nikita Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi), and the sadistic secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria (Simon Russell Beale). But as they bumble, brawl, and backstab their way to the top, just who is running the government? Combining palace intrigue with rapid-fire farce, this audacious comedy is a bitingly funny takedown of bureaucratic dysfunction performed to the hilt by a sparkling ensemble cast.
Dir: Armando Iannucci / 2018 / UK, FRANCE / 107 min

“From start to finish, director/co-writer Armando Iannucci (creator of HBO’s brilliant Veep) delivers an audacious and insightful and ridiculous and hilarious send-up that reminded me of the classic Monty Python films of the 1970s and 1980s.” – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

“Armando Iannucci’s hilarious, profane satire about politburos pole-positioning for power could not be more timely. It’s the funniest, fiercest comedy of the year.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“There is one thing that power can’t stand, and that is to be mocked: The social importance of this topical romp should not be underestimated.” – Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail
