At TIFF 2017, this was one of the movies to see. This film is supposed to be an uproarious dark comedy. It is dark. The Three Stooges moments are a little humorous. Unfortunately, the story is accurate enough that you can’t forget the horrors of Stalin’s regime. Steve Buscemi‘s conniving Kruschev and Jeffrey Tambor’s bumbling Malenkov are the highlights of the movie.
Follows the Soviet dictator’s last days and depicts the chaos of the regime after his death.
