The Death of Stalin was a truly delightful movie, even if it was a little predictable at times. It was an entertaining and well-written film that had many surprising twists and turns, and left me with a happy ending. The main theme of the film is the battle between Lenin and Stalin, and the struggles of the latter for the power of the USSR. The director, Alexander Sokurov, does a wonderful job of showing the changes in the Russian government, and in the politics of the time. The film is shot in a way that really allows the viewer to feel the current world of the late Soviet Union, and the new Soviet government, without the need of a lot of fancy camera work. It is very well-paced, and the performances are very good. I particularly liked the performance of Vladimir Mudarin, who plays the role of the main character, Alexei Yezhov, in the movie. He is so convincing as the man who is almost completely unknown in the United States, and has no political background whatsoever, that it is almost impossible to believe he is really a communist. The supporting cast also do a great job, and I especially enjoyed the performance of Sasha Baumgarten, who plays the role of the head of the Soviet party. The movie is very well-made, and it really gets you interested in the times in which it was made. The only problem I had with the movie was the lack of history in the movie. For example, Lenin did not meet with Stalin until sometime after Stalin was still alive, and Stalin was not a very popular man, even in his own country. So, in my opinion, it was a bit of a letdown to not have more background on the characters. I was also a bit disappointed in the ending, which was not exactly as I had hoped. The main theme of the movie is the fight between Lenin and Stalin, and there is no real reason why the ending of the movie should be as it was. The movie is definitely worth seeing, but I can not really recommend it to everyone. It is also worth noting that the DVD of the movie has very little English subtitles, and the movie is subtitled in Russian.
