The Death of Stalin is a 2017 British-French period comedy-drama film directed by Armando Iannucci. It chronicles the Soviet power struggles occasioned by the death of dictator Joseph Stalin in 1953. … The film was screened in the Platform section at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.

Adapted from French graphic novel by Fabien Nury and Thierry Robins. As the Soviet dictator drew his very last breaths and then died, political infighting led to total chaos within the party.

Critics Consensus: The Death of Stalin finds director/co-writer Arnando Iannucci in riotous form, bringing his scabrous political humor to bear on a chapter in history with painfully timely parallels. Rotten Tomatoes 97%
