I rated The Death of Stalin (2017) 5/10 #IMDb

The difficult blend of very serious matters (hit lists, abductions, rape, corruption, summary executions) and a combination of farcical disorganisation and bureaucracy makes for an odd movie. Not much of the humour is LOL. And yet it is a film with masses of wry satirical bite.

At times it is a bit too ridiculous. For example the remaining committee members moving Stalin from the floor to his bed. Maybe this is accurate. And perhaps hat uncertainty of what’s genuine and what’s embellished is an inhibitor on engaging in the events.

It’s a well done, bitterly satirical movie about some very difficult events and some very unlikeable characters.

I go to the movies now and again. I take a few photos here and there and play with them a bit in Adobe Lightroom.
