The Death of Stalin

Here is a film that almost no one has heard of. It’s truly an independent. Starring Steve Buscemi as Nikita Kruschev, it is the story of the transition of power after Stalin died. His chosen successor is a dolt so Kruschev and another are fighting for the second position. Believe it or not Kruschev is the good guy. The movie is a farce with many comical characters including Stalin’s son who is one step above an idiot. This is a black comedy, so some people may not like the morbid humor, but I enjoyed it. You will probably have a hard time finding it in theaters so look for it on cable or streaming video. It really is a gem.
