British satirist Armando Iannucci has won critical praise in Britain for his latest film – a darkly comic look at the power struggle to succeed Josef Stalin – but in Russia not all politicians share the joke."The Death of Stalin," which stars Steve Buscemi, Jeffrey Tambor and Jason Isaacs, held its U.K. premiere this week. There has been no comment from the Kremlin about the film, but communist members of the Russian Parliament are calling for a ban on its release in Russia.Stalin ruled Russia for three decades, during which he is widely held responsible for the deaths of millions of people, many in the gulag network of labor camps.
