It's ace to be able to sit for 100 minutes and watch massively talented actors have so much fun with such impressive writing.

I was hoping it would be a little more funny. There weren't a lot of laughs. Acting was fine. I was bored for most of it and it lost my attention for most of the movie.

The movie is definitely not for everyone. If the type of humor used in the movie doesn't work with you, you'll probably find the whole experience pretty weird. That's not my case, though. The story is beautifully told and, even though I already knew how it was going to end, it managed to captivate me for the whole duration. The cast was really well picked, with great synergy between them. The actors were able to portray the ruthlessness of their characters while making them look like fools, creating a really funny juxtaposition. The resemblance with the real people, while not perfect, was really well done, almost like a slight caricature. Overall, a very enjoyable movie. Its 100 minutes go by very smoothly and if you don't know much( or anything) about the period around the death of Stalin it is a good way to learn about it and the players in this Soviet game of thrones. 8/10

The Thick Of It: the Russian Edition! Great script, wonderful dialogue, and talented playing by the accomplished cast. Funny, to be sure, but some of the comedy is offset by the ugliness of the real life events and characters that form the basis of the film.

The multi-talented Armando Iannucci takes his unique and caustic eye and focusses it on the Soviet Union of the 1950s. This was a time of mass suppression and death and shameful time in the history of Russia and humanity. So do you think was going to make it a balls-out comedy? No. With Iannucci it More

An interesting, but somewhat worrying docudrama look at the United Kingdom if Comrade Corbyn ever came to power.

Pretty genuinely funny, which I was not expecting. A great one for me and my roommate with a hammer and sickle tattoo to watch together.

_Final rating:★★★ - I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
