The movie trailer for The Death of Stalin, had us crying with laughter. It is a comedy, albeit a dark one, that envisions the political machinations following the death of the Communist dictator of Russia. In full disclosure, this author is a huge fan of the genre that includes Fargo and The Producers, so this trailer tickles my funny bone.
In a world where we a political narrative is preached, largely from the Left by so many in Hollywood using scripts and characters to advance a narrative, seeing the trailer for this movie makes my heart smile. If we can’t mock what is arguably one of the most murderous and oppressive ideologies ever to infect the planet, we’re doing it all wrong.
Scheduled release is October 20th in the UK and the 2018 US.
