THE DEATH OF STALIN
Armando Iannucci, creator of HBO's Veep, takes aim at politics again. But this time the comedy targets the Soviet Union, with Stalin's team of ministers struggling for control after the dictator's collapse. "Like Orwell on helium, this reimagining of Stalin’s demise and the subsequent ideological gymnastics of his scheming acolytes is daring, quick-fire and appallingly funny," says Time Out London. Comedy, 106 min., R.
