Zalakevivius was able to develop his own highly original style during the political changes in the Soviet Union after the death of Joseph Stalin. At that time many.
But whether Stalin wanted to admit it or not, his health was indeed flagging. When he summoned a Communist Party Congress—the first in over a decade—in , those attending expected it to outline the roadmap of party succession.
The great role, the only important one at the congress, was played by Stalin himself. When it came to members of his inner circle, he especially wanted to remind them they were all disposable.
But in the final months of his life, watchers of the Soviet Union could detect something more was going on with Stalin. Late that evening, Stalin summoned Malenkov, Beria, Khruschev and Bulganin like normal to watch a movie.
The trial against the Kremlin doctors was to commence within weeks. He was in a jocular mood and joked a lot. He waved his index finger or his fist and prodded me in the stomach, calling me Mikola.
He always used the Ukrainian form of my name when he was in good spirits. Well, we left in good spirits too, since nothing had happened during the dinner.
Those dinners did not always end on a happy note. Three of them — Malenkov, Beria and Khrushchev — were as crafty, as skilled, as tough as any figures to be found in Russia.
Did those three march down the path to the precipice without making a move to save themselves? The next day, a Sunday, Khrushchev says he remained at home, expecting Stalin to call to extend an invitation for that evening.
But Stalin did not call him, or anyone else for that matter. According to later interviews, those working at the dacha claimed they were too scared to disturb Stalin.
It took until around at night for someone to check on Stalin. Other accounts say it was the longtime maid. Whoever entered the room found the dictator on the ground in his pajamas, the floor soaked with urine.
An empty glass and mineral water were on the table, and it appeared as though Stalin had gotten out of bed to get water, but then had a stroke.
Members of the dacha staff carried him onto the dining room sofa, where they covered him with a rug. While the consensus among those present was to call a doctor, the officers on guard wanted to wait on instructions from the party leadership.
Beria and Malenkov arrived first at the dacha. But Beria could have also believed what he was saying; to an untrained eye, Stalin may very well have appeared to be sleeping.
Intentionally or not, it took until around 7 in the morning for the members to reach a decision to call the Minister of Health to select doctors for an initial look.
And there's some truth to that in that you should also learn. But, let's just say, that your teacher is like Ben Stein in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, where his monotone and boring form of talking means that he's, essentially, a substitute for Ambien to the kids taking his classes.
Nobody is gonna learn anything from a teacher like that. Same thing applies to a teacher with no passion for what they do. None of that resonates with kids or, really, any student of any age for that matter.
For example, take this movie, as an example, and imagine this as a class taught by Ben Stein. Now, let's take out Ben Stein out of the equation and, say, we put George Carlin in his place or whomever your favorite comic is.
It's not just a stand-up routine, you're actually also learning something about the Soviet Union in the aftermath of Stalin's death.
You tell me which class you're gonna remember more??? This brings us to this little flick right here. To criticize the movie for not being historically accurate, mostly historians, I feel, is kind of missing the point of the movie.
Armando Iannucci isn't Kenneth Branagh, who would probably go nuts if he was to write and direct this movie, making a four-hour comprehensive epic that would be as close to the real thing as humanly possible.
Armando Iannucci is a satirist, well-known for his political satires The Thick Of It which was extended to an excellent film called In The Loop , Veep and, obviously, this movie.
He's taken a look at the immediate aftermath of Stalin's death, the instant political machinations by both Beria and Nikita in order to assert their vision for the Soviet Union's future by manipulating those around them, trying to gain as many people in the presidium in their favor in order to oust the other.
It's completely and utterly fascinating to watch honestly. There's a sort of manic energy surrounding the events of the movie as, in many ways, and this clearly oversimplifies what happens, it's kind of a tug-of-war between Nikita and Beria and they're trying to pull as hard and as fast as they can to, basically, improve their position.
Georgy Malenkov, Stalin's successor, really is kind of a patsy and he doesn't really run anything, Beria and Nikita are the men pulling the strings from behind the scenes, as it were, Georgy is just the figurehead that they have propped up at the moment to give the nation a sense of continuity during this transitional period in Soviet Union's history.
Beria and Nikita both paint their intentions for those of the betterment of the country but, deep down, it's painfully clear that they want to lead the Soviet Union into a, supposedly, more prosperous period.
The film covers so much ground and, quite honestly, Soviet Union politics are not my forte, so I'm not even gonna bother going through every tiny little detail the film has to offer.
Like I said, however, the film is, quite frankly, quite fucking great and the story it tells is so damn fascinating that it inspires you, if you didn't know about this chapter in history, to pick up a book detailing the consequences of Nikita and Beria's actions in the immediate aftermath of Stalin's death.
And I imagine it also must capture how stressful it was to be either of these two men Nikita and Beria during this time, not knowing what their future would hold, whether they would even be alive at the end of that particular year.
As entertaining as the movie is, and it is quite frankly a hilarious movie at times, I don't think it ever pretends that this was a wonderful time in history nor does it try to sugarcoat the horrible shit that happened in the aftermath.
I think, in this film's context at least, Nikita knew very well what he was doing and he was using these civilians in order to, maybe, push Beria out the door.
There's some really sobering scenes of people who might have helped Beria's cause being executed as if they were nothing and, to me, I think that's what most impacting about the movie, just the sheer amount of government oppression on display here.
Doctors are killed, most of them off screen, just for being doctors and, supposedly, plotting against the Soviet Union the evidence of this treason most likely having been fabricated.
Even the climactic act itself, with the coup against Beria, him being subdued and giving a quick "trial" and promptly executed like he's nothing.
Kind of sobering to watch honestly. As is to be expected with a film from someone like Armando Iannucci, the script is tremendous with biting satire.
I don't wanna say the movie is a laugh riot from beginning to end, because it's not, but the comedy in the movie is tremendous.
Vasily, Stalin's son, steals pretty much every scene he's in. That's not to say that the rest of the characters themselves aren't memorable, because they are, it's just that Vasily, a more ancillary character that's not really relevant to the narrative in any significant way, can be used as the "comic" relief.
And that's saying something when every major character has great comedic moments. I think the movie invites you in with its comedy, but it hooks you with its tale of political machinations and excellent performances from every single member of the cast.
Steve Buscemi gives his best performance in years non-Boardwalk Empire. Simon Russell Beale is a tremendous villain.
I single out these three because they really are at the head of the film's narrative and they drive it forward, but this might be the best cast I've seen in a comedy in fucking ages.
That's how great they are. In many ways, this movie isn't exactly gonna be everybody's cup of tea, since I'm certain most casual fans aren't really gonna find much to like here, in spite of how great this movie is, but I found this to be a top-notch movie.
I cannot complain about this movie in the slightest, this is a great movie not just a great comedy and I would easily recommend it if you know the type of political satire that you're getting into.

May 02, This film is funny, sometimes in the smartest way and other times in the dumbest. It balances political power plays with goofy satire well, and the performances are very entertaining.
The plot of this film, however, is very thin and the narrative never wows you. This movie is certainly entertaining, but won't have you belly-laughing, biting your nails, or blow your mind.

But several cinemas screened the film in late January, claiming that by then they had not heard that the movie's exhibition license had been revoked.
Russia's culture ministry sued these theatres. A group of Russian Culture Ministry's lawyers, including the daughter of Zhukov, Era Zhukova, cinematographers Nikita Mikhalkov , Vladimir Bortko , and Head of the Russian State Historical Museum Alexey Levykin,  petitioned Culture Minister Vladimir Medinsky to withdraw the film's certification, saying " The Death of Stalin is aimed at inciting hatred and enmity, violating the dignity of the Russian Soviet people, promoting ethnic and social inferiority, which points to the movie's extremist nature.
We are confident that the movie was made to distort our country's past so that the thought of the s Soviet Union makes people feel only terror and disgust.
In Armenia the film premiered in two theatres in Yerevan on 25 January In Belarus the film premiered after an initial delay. Donald Clarke, writing for The Irish Times , wrote that the film "starts in a state of mortal panic and continues in that mode towards its inevitably ghastly conclusion".
There are no weak links. Each has a plum role; each squeezes every gorgeous horrible drop. Raphael Abraham, writing for Financial Times , wrote, "As this coven of vampiric apparatchiks feasts on the remains of Stalinism, the unremitting blackness of the situation at times threatens a full comedy eclipse.
But the discomfiting balancing act of humour and horror is precisely Iannucci's game—and only he could pull it off with such skill.
Former U. A number of academics have pointed to historical inaccuracies in The Death of Stalin. My aim is for the audience to feel the sort of low-level anxiety that people must have when they just went about their daily lives at the time.
Historian Richard Overy has written that the film "is littered with historical errors", including:. Overy was most critical that the film did not appropriately honour those who died during Stalin's leadership.
Iannucci said he "chose to tone down real-life absurdity" to make the work more believable. The Radio Moscow portion is a retelling of an apocryphal story first recorded in Solomon Volkov 's book Testimony.
Another smaller historical aspect of the plot was modified for the film—the Sverdlovsk plane crash in which 11 players on the VVS Moscow ice hockey team died.
In the movie Vasily Stalin and Anatoly Tarasov deal with a depleted Soviet Union national ice hockey team , complete with a reference to their star player Vsevolod Bobrov , who missed the flight.
Samuel Goff, at the Department of Slavonic Studies, University of Cambridge , while admitting that the film's historical discrepancies could be justified as helping to focus the drama, wrote that turning Beria into "an avatar of the obscenities of the Stalinist state" missed the chance to say "anything about the actual mechanisms of power.
