Death of Stalin, The (2018, Rupert Friend, Michael Palin)

Published

on


In historical comedyThe Death of Stalin, when tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin dies in 1953, his parasitic cronies square off in a frantic power struggle to become the next Soviet leader.

Among the contenders are the dweebish Georgy Malenkov, the wily Nikita Khrushchev and Lavrenti Beria – the sadistic secret police chief. As they bumble, brawl and back-stab their way to the top, the question remains – just who is running the government?
