The Death of Stalin (2017)

Sadly, although I could appreciate what I was supposed to feel while watching this, it just didn’t happen for me.

I’m not much given to farce and so although I gave a couple of wry smiles, all the entering and exiting of rooms, and the trying to say the right thing just left me a little irritated, particularly given the quite serious subject matter.

That’s not to say that I couldn’t appreciate some really good performances. I really liked Steve Buscemi’s Nikita Khrushchev, and Jason Isaacs completely steals every scene he is in as Georgy Zhukov – he raised the only quiet giggles I could muster.

I can see why plenty of people really like this. It just didn’t do it for me.
