Found 27th Mar
Death of Stalin is iTunes' Tuesday Treat, so you can rent it in HD for just £1.99. Amazon have also price-matched.

The film has received great reviews - it's directed by Armando Iannucci, one of the key people behind The Thick of It / Veep, so that should you give some idea what to expect!

...Stalin with a cockney accent???? ...


I think you've missed the point. Yes, Stalin is a cockney geezer, and General Zhukov has a no-nonsense Yorkshire accent. They're not going for a Downfall kind of realism. It's a black comedy. And very funny.

Hmmm...almost every review (95% positive on Rotten Tomatoes) and everyone I know would disagree with you!
Didn't think it was bad, just didn't laugh that much. Needs a 2nd viewing.
Best film I've seen all year - helps if you know a little bit about the Soviet Union and key characters.
It's a wonderful film imho. Best film I saw last year. It is very, very funny and then shocking at times. The writer and director seems to be a genius to me to get such humour out of such horrors.
Heat added.
Agree the film is complete and utter rubbish!

Stalin with a cockney accent???? really???

dont waste your money

all 166 reviews on rotten tomatoes who mostly liked it - not even a screenful

there were a few good bits of dialogue and i might give it another chance but i really didn't enjoy it

only got 3/5 in The Guardian, same in the Independent, Telegraph were kinder at 4/5. Imdb was 7.2 Empire loved it as did Mark Kermode. But not everyone wants to laugh about genocide, not even Putin

Also got 5/5 in another guardian review (Peter Bradshaw).
Great film, wont be to everyone's taste but I really enjoyed it
Funny film, loved it.
Just amazon testing its loyal customers as per about time they cut the crap and just set the price all to a pound or two it would just work.

Stalin did have an accent though. Georgian.
I was very 50/50 about watching it but glad I did, thought it was very good. The tone changes in the second half, becomes a little more serious which was necessary. Got the mix perfectly I felt.
One of those films that critics rave about but leaves you feeling disappointed when you watch them. Its not bad, but for a black comedy i would expect to laugh at least a few times. -3 stars-

Terrible film, watched Three Billboards (much better contender) a few days before TSOW, so hoped it wouldn't win the Oscar.

Won't be the last unworthy winner though.
Great film, Palin is the star though.

The fact that, on average, this film scores highly, means that your "Terrible Film" assertion is wholly incorrect.

3 Billboards was amazing, love the previous work of the director too - not too sure what's going on with Oscars. TSOW is patronising, superficial and with 1D characters. Even Sam Rockwell's racist mum wasn't entirely bad.

When the world wants to know about a film, do they go to IMDb, or do they go and ask cyclonus10.

Hmmm.. Tough one.
