After taking on Westminster and Washington in The Thick Of It and Veep, Armando Iannucci, turns his satirical eye east and tackles, in his latest film, a real slice of Russian history. Moscow in 1953 was not a fun place to be. Under Stalin’s dictatorship, there were mass executions, labour camps and famine. At the heart of it are the kind of vile schemers that we would expect from Iannucci – Steve Buscemi plays a calculating Khrushchev, Simon Russell Beale’s Beria is a slimy monster and The Fast Show’s Paul Whitehouse is a bolshy Bolshevik. The terrific ensemble cast are a lot of fun to watch. Hilarious yes, but this is a black comedy where the laughs abruptly stop and serve us with a timely reminder that things could be much, much worse.
