A way to approach a brutal subject by identifying the humor within it, while not sacrificing emotional moments. Good acting and writing too.
Iannucci is the king of political satire. Massively quotable, effortlessly funny and brilliantly performed.
Nutty and great to see the weaving of historic events
This is a really clever political satire.
The product and modern champion of the British comedy, casting light onto the absurdity of our darkest days with buckets of sarcasm.
Incredibly funny with an undertone that is just as dark
Would have been a lot better as a series, like a fun version of ‘House of Cards’.
Excellent satire with stellar cast. Much easier to watch than anticipated.
Sharply-written and performed, with hilarious and self aware laughs.
A really funny satire on the soviet union during and after Stalin. Great performances, a lot of funny moments. Worth watching for sure!
Not an easy type of comedy, but done great.
Insightful period comedy characterizing the weight of Soviet authoritarianism. Ensemble cast and incredible depiction
Hilarious and quirky. Found it a great twist on an often forgotten piece of history in the west.
Hilarious dark comedy, fantastic acting all around, very unusual setting.
Very dark and edgy. The approach is necessary, though, to show just how silly power structures like these are, and how no one gets out clean
Funny in a very dark way. There were times where it failed to keep me 100% interested, but I did spend the next few days thinking about it!
Very funny in a dark and sometimes absurd way, has many great characters
A pretty funny take on a serious historical event.
I love the premise of this movie, I enjoyed it but it could have been a lot funnier.
Witty and hilarious writing paired with a refreshing feel and atmosphere. It isn’t one to miss.
