The Death of Stalin

Post by MiddleAgedKen » Thu Jul 11, 2019 2:22 am

If you haven't seen this yet, I recommend it. Excellent dark comedy. The meetings of the Presidium reminded me of my curriculum committee. Cast includes:

Khruschev: Steve Buscemi
Beria: Simon Russell Beale
Malenkov: Jeffrey Tambor
Molotov: Michael Palin
Svetlana Stalina: Andrea Riseborough
Vasiliy Stalin: Rupert Friend
Zhukov: Jason Isaacs (who tucks the whole shooting match into his Red Army greatcoat and swaggers away)
Watergate didn't have a body count.

+1. I enjoyed it. (but I've been told I have a sick sense of humor)
...even before I read MHI, my response to seeing a poster for the stars of the latest Twilight movies was "I see 2 targets and a collaborator".
