Reviews:
"Iannucci’s brand of political satire is applied to one of the darkest chapters in modern history, with sensational results. The Lives Of Others with laughs, it’s farcical, frightening and a timely reminder that things could always be worse. "
- Nick de Semlyen, Empire

"The Death Of Stalin is superbly cast, and acted with icy and ruthless force by an A-list lineup. There are no weak links. Each has a plum role; each squeezes every gorgeous horrible drop. "
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

"There is one thing that power can’t stand, and that is to be mocked: The social importance of this topical romp should not be underestimated. "
- Kate Taylor, The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

"It’s 'Veep' in the Soviet Union, a welcome expansion of Iannucci’s canvas that keeps his savage comedy intact."
- Eric Kohn, Indiewire

"The Death of Stalin is Iannucci’s most complex and almost nihilistic rendering of what politics is: A team of bumbling and weak-minded people who lack any real conviction other than a desire for power and position. "
- Alissa Wilkinson, Vox

"A riotous farce of doublespeak and plotting laced with moments of bitumen-black horror."
- Philip De Semlyen, Time Out

"Its application of [Iannucci's] signature barbed comic voice to such grim history (executions are a constant source of gallows humor) packs its own punch."
- A.A. Dowd, AV Club

"From start to finish, director/co-writer Armando Iannucci (creator of HBO's brilliant Veep) delivers an audacious and insightful and ridiculous and hilarious send-up that reminded me of the classic Monty Python films of the 1970s and 1980s."
- Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

"Armando Iannucci's hilarious, profane satire about politburos pole-positioning for power could not be more timely. It's the funniest, fiercest comedy of the year."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
