For me, this was bust a gut funny. Loved it, loved it.
Very funny, great cast, worth watching.
Just one thing that struck me. Buscemi looks absolutely nothing like Khruschev and would have been perfect to play Beria, it would also have given him more to work with. Meanwhile Simon Beale, whose performance was admittedly very good would have made a perfect Khruschev. One was heavy set, the other more slight in stature, yet the actors portraying them are the opposite, not sure if it was intentional or not, I thought it was strange.
Had us crying laughing, it's extremely well written as you'd expect from the guy who brought us Veep.
Be warned though, the movie does overtly hint at one of the main characters being a brutal rapist as he was in real life. None of it is shown but it gets dark at times.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
