Joseph Stalin ruled the Soviet union for thirty year and during that time he Killed twenty million people. Most films that deal with situations like this would be serious dramas. However Armando Iannucci the man behind the underrated 2009 comedy In the Loop and the hit HBO series veep, Finds comedy where most fail to look, even if its among some of history’s worst mass murderers.
