Rotten Tomatoes


The dictator Stalin did all of the horrific things depicted in this film and more. However, the attraction to this film is the intellectual appreciation of the tragedy and the revelations of the inner workings of Soviet era politics. Executed – pun intended – by Armando Iannucci, a filmmaker who specializes in satire and wit. Dark, yes. A comedy? You decide.
