This is a great movie. I've seen it twice and it is better the second time. It's the story of Stalin's last days in power, and how it affected his family. A must see!

It is hard to imagine that a documentary of this length could be so boring, but in this case, it is. If you want to see a documentary that is not about a person, but about a time period, then you might as well watch the time that the movie takes place in. And if you want to see a documentary about Stalin, then you better watch this one. The movie is a mixture of propaganda, drama, and history, with a little bit of comedy thrown in. I think that it is the best documentary of this kind that I have seen. The most important thing is that the movie is based on a book, and so is the story. The book is called "The Death of Stalin", and the movie is called "The Death of Stalin". The book is based on the life of Joseph Stalin, and the movie is based on his life. The story of Stalin's life is very interesting, and the movie is good because it shows the way that the story was told to the people of the Soviet Union. The story is told very well, and the way that the movie shows it is very interesting. I would give this movie a 9.5 out of 10.

I'm so glad I saw this movie! It was wonderful. I never thought I'd be able to laugh out loud at a movie, but this one was right up my alley. It was very funny. The actors were very good, especially the two main characters, who were very funny. The cinematography was great, and the story was very moving. I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to laugh, and have a great time.

A must-see film for anyone who is interested in Soviet history. A few notes: 1)The film is almost entirely in Russian, but it is quite readable and easy to follow. 2)The acting is superb. 3)The film is not intended to be taken seriously, but rather to educate the viewer. 4)The film is shot in black and white, but I didn't notice this at all. It was a nice touch. 5)The film was shot in London, not in the Soviet Union. 6)The film is almost entirely in black and white, but there are a few scenes in color. 7)The film is mostly shot in the Soviet Union. 8)There are no foreign characters in the film. 9)The film is only 97 minutes long. 10)The film is not meant to be taken seriously. In fact, the film is so well made that it makes me wonder if it was made in the Soviet Union. The film was well-received at the Toronto Film Festival. My review: 9/10

I'm not going to write a long detailed review about this movie. I just wanted to warn people about how it could be a bit to slow at times. But, once you get used to it, it's really good. I was surprised at how much I actually enjoyed it. It's definitely not for everyone, but I think it's one of the better documentaries I've seen. The thing I loved most about this movie was the fact that it showed what happened to Stalin, his regime, and the people of Russia. It also showed the people's reactions to the situation. This movie is definitely worth watching, and it definitely deserves a watch.

It is sad to see that movies like this are no longer made. I am a big fan of Joseph Goebbels and I was very excited to see this movie. However, it was not as good as I had expected. I am glad that this movie was made in the early 80's, but that was not the best time to make a movie about the history of the Germans. If the director would have focused on the positives of the history of the Germans, he would have been a great director. This movie was made in the 90's, and it was not as good as the 90's. The only reason I am giving this movie a 9 instead of a 10 is because it was made in the 90's. I would have liked to have seen a movie that was made in the 50's, 60's, 70's, or 80's.

I have seen this film twice, first in Russia and then in my home country. I had the privilege of seeing this movie at the most beautiful art theater in Moscow, the Nezhniki, in December of 1998. I was so touched that I immediately contacted the director and asked for a copy of the film. I was a little afraid that this movie would be a sort of "chicken and egg" situation, since the director would never be able to find the right audience for the movie. But I was wrong. The audience that was there for the first showing was over-whelming in its support. They loved the movie, and in my opinion it was the best Russian movie ever made. The audience at the second showing was even more overwhelming, and I could hardly contain my tears when the movie ended. This movie has a very special place in my heart. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes to see a movie, or to those who are interested in history. The story is very much based on the events of the Russian Revolution of 1917. It is a very interesting story, and I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes to see a good story. It is not a movie that I would have ever thought to watch, but it was very interesting to me. It's a movie that I would definitely watch again.

I'm so glad I got to see this movie. It's one of the best films I have ever seen, and the characters are so well drawn. I was very impressed with the acting of the whole cast, and how well they portrayed the emotions that each of the characters had. The storyline was very good, and the whole cast was very good in their roles. I think that the movie was very realistic and well made, and I thought it was very realistic that the story of the film was based on actual events. It was very well made and it showed the entire history of the Soviet Union and how the people were manipulated by the government. I thought the characters were very well done, and I think that the actors did an excellent job in portraying the emotions of each of the characters. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see a very good film that will make them think and make them laugh. It is very funny, and is very entertaining. I think that everyone should see this movie, because it is a very good movie.

This movie is truly a piece of art. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is because of the bitching and complaining about the acting. I guess that's why I'm rating it 9. But all in all, this movie is an amazing and very well done piece of art.

I have seen the movie only once and I think it is one of the most important movies of our times. The story of Stalin's execution and his close friendship with his former student and his father is truly sad. The movie is very strong in its message. The movie is not just about Stalin's execution, but also about the people's hopes and the love of a father for his son. I think this movie is the most important movie of our time, and the movie that will be remembered for years to come. I think the movie is a must see.

This movie is absolutely a must see! It is a movie that shows the horrors of the USSR. The movie is really good, and if you think that you are not a real movie buff, this is the movie to see!

In the closing scene of this movie, we see the last portrait of Stalin. It is a beautiful portrait of the man. The color, the expression, the look, the posture. It is a perfect portrait of a man who lived in a time and a country that were changing all around him. This movie is not just a portrait of Stalin, but it is a portrait of the Soviet Union. I believe that this movie is a true story about a man, who lived in a time and a country that were changing all around him. The movie is very well done. I do not know what other movies are like, but this movie is one of the best that I have seen.

This movie was great. It was hilarious and entertaining. The cast was great, but the biggest asset was the script. It was well written and was one of the best scripts I have ever seen. It was not one of the best films ever, but it was a great movie. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see a movie with good entertainment value. It was a good movie and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see a movie with good entertainment value.

As a person who has studied Russian history and lived in Russia, I felt that the way the film was done was accurate and well done. The problem is, it is all the other way around. In my opinion, this film is an attempt to defend Stalin and his regime. As a Soviet citizen, I don't feel that this film really makes it clear that Stalin did nothing wrong, and he was in fact the best leader in Russia. I feel that the way the film portrays Stalin as a ruthless dictator, is not only inaccurate, but it is also extremely misleading. Stalin was not a dictator, he was a human being, and he did some horrible things, but that is not what this film is trying to do. It is trying to show how horrible Stalin was and how horrible the rest of the Soviet Union was. This film is meant to be a propaganda piece, but the way the film is portrayed, it makes it look like a film about Stalin, and not a film about the Soviet Union. If the film was accurate and did not try to make a film about Stalin, I think it would be a much better film. But, this is not what this film is trying to do. It is a film about a man, and it shows that he was a good leader, but not a good dictator.

It was a long time coming. This film was brilliant. I saw it in a packed theatre and everyone clapped and cheered. The cast is wonderful. A great cast is always worth seeing. Jeremy Irons is superb and even gave an Oscar worthy performance. John Hurt is great too. A must see. Don't miss it. It is a must see.

This movie is a masterpiece. There is not a single moment in this movie that is not gripping. It is a love story and a political history lesson. The actors are perfect for the parts. The only flaw in this movie is that the characters don't seem to speak English. The language is important because the characters are speaking in English, the other languages are just background. It is not a problem, the movie is so good that it is worth a second look.

What a wonderful movie! It is a real work of art and must be watched! I saw this film on a Saturday afternoon and I am very glad I did. I don't know how I could have missed it at the theatre. The cast is excellent, and the whole story is quite realistic. It is well worth watching. I don't want to give too much away but if you are interested in the Russian Revolution and Communism then this is a must see. You will not be disappointed!

This film is a very good example of how to make a film about a man's life, and the reactions to it. The film is set in the early 1970s in Russia. The story is about how a man, Boris Karloff (played by Mark Strong) who had lived a privileged life, and the failures of his family. He falls in love with a woman (played by Laura Linney) and he is struggling to come to terms with his past. This film has some of the best acting I have ever seen. Mark Strong, and Laura Linney are great actors, and the rest of the cast are also very good. There is a great atmosphere in this film. It is very tense and realistic. This film is very hard to watch. I think it is a very good film, and I recommend it to people who like good films.

The Death of Stalin is a very good film. It is a real eye opener of how the Soviet Union went through its great crisis and how it fell apart. It is a documentary about the events and how they affected the people and how the government responded. I highly recommend this film. I thought it was very well done and really brings the reality of the events. It is not a documentary that you watch, you watch it. If you are interested in the events of the last years of the Soviet Union and the last years of the Soviet Union then this film is for you. It is a good movie and one that will make you think. 9/10

This is a great movie. It tells the story of how a young boy who was supposed to be dead, and who was only a few days old, who survived the execution of his father. This movie is also a tribute to the great leader of the Soviet Union, the greatest leader of the twentieth century. I think that this movie is a great example of how to tell the story of a great leader, and how to show the story of a great leader in a good and interesting way. I think that this movie is a great example of how to make a great movie, and how to make a great movie about the greatest leader of the twentieth century.

This is a very entertaining film, but I think it does not fully capture the essence of the personality of Stalin. He is portrayed as a very self-centered, self-centred, and narcissistic man. This is not true, however. Stalin was a very intelligent man, and one who was able to turn around a struggling Soviet economy. He was also a very efficient person. He could make use of the wealth he had accumulated to increase his power and to do whatever he pleased. He was a very intelligent man, and this was one of his most interesting characteristics. His personality is not portrayed as well in this film. Overall, I thought the film was very entertaining, and it was very interesting. The acting was very good, and the story was very well-told.

A must see for anyone who loves the real story of how the world is divided into classes, and how the aristocracy and the proletariat are trying to separate themselves from each other. The movie is a great story of how one man can make a difference, and that is what makes the movie so entertaining. If you want to see a great movie, see this movie. It is a great movie, with great actors, and the story is about how the world is divided into classes, and how one man can make a difference. A must see.

This film is very well done and is a great account of the last days of the USSR. It was filmed in Canada, but the look and feel of the film is very much a Russian. The only difference is the lighting, which is much more natural than in the USA. The scenes are shot in a style similar to the movie 'Stalingrad' or 'Glory'. The lighting is very dark and there is very little contrast, so the film looks very dark and cold. The film is very good because it has a very good screenplay and it has a good cast. But the director does not have any Russian accent. This film is very good because it is very good, but it is not a masterpiece, because it has a very bad screenplay.

A must see film, but not for everyone. It's a great story that really deserves a big audience. It's a shame that this film has been pushed aside by the mass media and the mass media is taking it's time to promote the current president. I wonder how long it will be before a movie is made about the real life events of Stalin's death. I can't wait to see it. I was a bit disappointed that the movie was not directed by the same director who made the great film "Black Swan".

What a beautiful film. There are few films that have made me feel as I did while watching this. My first experience with a documentary was during the events of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. It made me feel that I was part of the story, and I could not turn away. This film is no different. This film is not only about the Russian revolution, but the actions that took place during it. It's not just about a man's death, it's about the man and his actions. The documentary has a documentary feel to it, but it's much more than that. It's about the impact that a man had on a country, and it's about the impact that his actions had on his people. It's a film that will be remembered for years to come, and I'm very glad that I got to experience it.

This is a really great movie. It is very close to the real life of Joseph Stalin. He is portrayed as a man who has a lot of power and influence but also is a very kind person. He was a man who was never willing to sacrifice anyone's life, even if it meant losing his own. He was a man who wanted to unite Russia and create a great nation. I recommend this movie to anyone who wants to know more about Joseph Stalin.

I really like the movie, but I don't understand why the critics are so hard on it. It's an honest depiction of the life of the late Soviet leader. As far as I know, he didn't die in a plane crash, he died in a political prison camp, he was tortured, he was a slave. And I don't understand why people are so negative about it. This is a movie that should be seen by all. The fact that the people who made it didn't care to be famous is a good thing.
