'The Death of Stalin'

How we've missed you, Armando Iannucci! The British satirist behind The Thick of It and In the Loop – and the creator of Veep – returns with a tale revolving around the Russian dictator suddenly going the way of all flesh. Suddenly, political toadies, party apparatchiks, comrades-in-arms scam artists and other opportunists (including a balding Steve Buscemi and a follicularly blessed Jeffrey Tambor) come crawling out of the Kremlin's woodwork, hoping to capitalize on their dear leader's demise. If Iannucci's past work is any indication, this comedy should be pitch black, poetically foul-mouthed and pants-wettingly hilarious.
