The Death of Stalin

The Death of Stalin movie film black comedy by Armando Iannocci
The Death of Stalin
Some people were sad and showed it, some others – were happy and hid it. March 5th, 1953, very late evening, small village close to Moscow. Ioseb Besarionis dze Jughashvili was announced  dead. Few hours later the news is spread by radios around the world. And in the Soviet capital begins a frantic power struggle. Who will win it? How it will happen? And for what price? This you can watch in a black comedy by Armando Iannucci.
Who was Joseph Stalin, the most frightening Soviet leader? His son Vasily says in the movie: “My father was a great social scientist, but we the people of the Soviet Union are not laboratory animals”. 

A big part of the history shown in a Monthy Pythonesque way.

DAU. Natasha - the most controversial film project at Berlinale 2020

DAU. Natasha - film works in Kharkiv, Ukraine - fot. Wikipedia.org   I have to confess I wasn’t aware of all the controversy the film DAU. Natasha had provoked when I decided to go for a screening of this film. The controversy had circled around the production of the DAU project - shot as 700 hours raw material from 2008 to 2011 on set in Kharkiv/Ukraine - as well as in particular the torture scene of the DAU.Natasha installment depicting a women forced to insert a bottle into her vagina. I’d dare to guess that Russian main regisseur  Ilya Khrzhanovsky deliberately choose to scandalize his DAU-films and its production on set as a kind of shock advertisement. Khrzhanovsky might have followed a trick often used by Vladimir Sorokin , the Russian playwright initially involved into his DAU project but parting soon over differences. However it was, let me write down, why I (dis)liked that film. DAU. Natasha - grandest cinematic experiment in Russia The film deals wit
