Mini Review - The Death of Stalin

The Death of Stalin (out Mar 29) is a comedy about the death of the Russian dictator in 1953 and the grab for power which followed. I'm a big fan of writer-director Armando Iannucci (Veep, The Thick of It) but with my limited knowledge of the subject matter and these real life character, much of the humour slipped past me. Grade: B.
