I view the movie in the same way I'd read Shakespeare: in a bubble of condensed time. Makes no sense that two 14 year olds fall in love and commit suicide within the span of 3 days, but the audience knows all events are shortened to the good bits for the sake of entertainment.

>nothing to do with you

Oh yeah totally nothing to do with you, after all it's a film about the death of a man who literally shaped world politics and thus the future for more than a quarter of the 20th century.

Im a really big comedy fan, but Death of Stalin just really isn't very funny to me.

Even beside the anti-communist ideological problems, the humor just wasn't particularly funny to me. There we good moments but overall just not great, like a 4/10 at most.


 No.2767037

One only has to look at the depiction of Zhukov here.

Movie: a stuck-up, neurotic, elitist warmonger; constantly in his parade uniform spouting unironic gulag jokes taken off the internet.

Reality: A man who grew up in poverty, rose in military ranks through consistent and constant military experience and among the top 10 brilliant generals of the Eastern Front. A man who respected Stalin and demanded that officers set an example for their troops. A man who preferred to dress and live quietly.

Political, dark humor is very hard to get right; it must be like a razor, where it cuts easily but not painfully and exposes the face of the matter. This requires refined and delicate writing especially when caricaturing certain individuals and must be supported with excellent acting and attention to detail.

This film has none of that. The jokes are crude and blunt, like a poorly sharpened axe and about as funny, it doesn't expose a layer of humor so much as behead it entirely. The actors, while many of them brilliant in the past, were extremely poor here, mostly because the personalities they were directed to act as did not even resemble the people they were supposed to be. Beria is the most striking example, coming off as a jittery slime-bag, something so different from the actual person and his behavior that it is through great difficulty one relates the character with the real person.

The details are also lacking. Stalin was buried in snowy weather, the film shows it as cheerful sunny weather, his death left many people affected heavily including people such as Vladimir Vysotsky who dedicated a poem to the man bewailing his untimely death, and he was far from alone.

The most problematic is the biases of the people who made the film. The director has publicly attacked the USSR and Stalin more than once, several actors supposedly had "repressed family members" something that is as ambiguous as it is doubtful, and over-all the point from the get go was not to create a dark, political comedy about the situation, (a situation that frankly isn't funny at all even from that perspective), their purpose was to lombast and attack the USSR and its government, and keep feeding the cold war shit machine of anti-Eastern propaganda, originating all the way back in the 1930s

Death of Stalin was based on a French graphic novel by Fabian Nury. It is catagorized under historical fiction. I think it was disingenuous to portray the film as historically accurate. My lumpen brother thought that It was scene for scene accurate. I had to explain that it is viewed through the lens of the humourless neoliberal french. Who, within the same period, had labour camps more horrific than any in the USSR. Who had been completely invaded by the Nazis. Even with their front in the war being backed up by the other allied forces. Whereas the reds stormed Berlin. Although, I didnt detect any overt bitterness these cultural hangups can last forever. Take Orwell and his experience with sectarian differences, see Asimov review of 1984:

http://www.newworker.org/ncptrory/1984.htm

Additionally, the directors niche is slap stick faulty goverments. For this pickle slicer everything is a pickle.

The layers of absurdity in the film muddy the waters of what was intentionally comedic. Especially considrring that a lot of the humour was histoically inaccurate. And yet it was still not very funny. If a comedian is going to take liberties to forego the truth to tell a funnier joke, that is one thing. However if a comedian just makes things up and the jokes are not funny then something has gone very wrong.

Except that he was, in 1953. That wasn't what the 1937 trials were about however.

> Overthrow the goverment

Rykov was demoted from his post as Premier of the USSR in 1930 and this was the beginning of a series of demotions and marginalization's as well as the fact that he was previously involved with an incident regarding some of the soviet gold reserve being sent to the USA when it had not been sanctioned by the party. Rykov would have many motives to be angry and want to get back in power.

Krylenko was among the people who encouraged the trials in the first place yet he was also under investigation. It comes to reason that Krylenko was hoping to get rid of opponents and got sucked into his own meatgrinder. There is also evidence that he was tied to Buharin, of which the evidence of anti-soviet action there exists more evidence.

Rizanov was not politically active in the opposition but he helped them greatly, firstly he organized material aid to them (Isacc Deutscher Prophet Unarmed) and he stored the archived works of all opposition members other than Trotsky himself within his institute, (http://bo0k.net/index.php?p=chapter&bid=4919&chapter=16)

*note: Deutscher is a trotskyist historian.

The reason there were innocents at all was because prior, from the 1920s to the early 30s They had given such people light sentences and let go many who had non-concrete evidence, immediately following that were tirades of anti-soviet sabotage and subversive activity, correlating with world-wide rise in militarism by capitalists. Soft tactics did not work… harsher ones were implimented.

Actual russians like it and consider it historically-accurate.

Zhukov also turned into a over-confident generalissimo in the end of his career.

>The relationship between Zhukov and Khrushchev reached its peak during the XX Congress of the Communist Party (1956). After becoming the First Secretary of the Party, Khrushchev moved against Stalin's legacy and criticised his "personality cult". To complete such startling acts, Khrushchev needed the approval—or at least the acquiescence—of the military, headed by Minister of Defense Zhukov.

>At the plenary session of Central Committee of CPSU held in June 1957 Zhukov supported Khrushchev against the "Anti-Party Group", that had a majority in the Presidium and voted to replace Khrushchev as First Secretary with Bulganin. At that plenum, Zhukov stated:

>The Army is against this resolution and not even a tank will leave its position without my order![70]

The movie is of course an obvious takedown of the Soviet leadership as being depraved criminals but I don't think anyone would make a similar movie about the Nazis. You couldn't make light of them in the same way.

I think the movie challenges some of the standard Western assumptions about the Soviet Union. I thought the scenes of thousands of people pouring into Moscow waving red banners and shouting "we're here to see Comrade Stalin!" was interesting. There's a part where Zhukov complains about the NKVD shutting down Moscow and he goes "the people… they want to see him! This is wrong!"

the movie is great, like everyone pointed out it has a shitload of innacuracies, some to save time, some others because it's based on Nikita's recounting of Stalinist times so Stalin is essentially depicted as this megalomaniac bloodthirsty cunt, but the movie is still great.

The movie is terrible, the actors are good but given terrible directing, and several of them literally only filmed in the movie because their great-grand someone was a kulak who fled to Canada or something and they want to poke fun at the USSR in return.

Stalin by the end of his life had grown distrustful of his closest comrades - Beria, Malenkov, Bulganin, Kruschev, and Molotov and Stalin planned to replace them.

In October 16, 1952, Stalin said to the Presidium:

“We have freed from the obligations minister Molotov, Kaganovich, Voroshilov, and others and replaced them with new workers. Why? On what basis? The work of a minister- is the work of a young man! It requires much strength, concrete knowledge and health. This is why we freed some of our excellent comrades from their posts and replaced them with new, more qualified, initiated workers. They are young people, full of strength and energy.”

After Stalin's death, these old faces all came back to power, some of the being dropped off later on in the power struggle.

The man who he wanted to be his successor at first was Nikolai Voznesensky, a highly educated Leningrad economist, responsible for restoring conditions of the liberated Soviet territory after the Germans were pushed back. Also wrote a huge book about the Soviet economy in WW2, winning a Stalin prize for his work. This drew the attention of Stalin, who openly called him his successor, but this was a big mistake, as in 1950, The Malenkov-Kruschev-Bulganin gang (Beria may have also been part, but his son denies it) fabricated a case and killed him on trumped up charges in the infamous "Leningrad affair". Stalin wrote on the case, "I do not believe it!", but Malenkov convinced him that it was true. Stalin was very sick at the time and could not offer much resistance. Then, according to Anatoly Lukjanov, a Soviet politician during the time, Stalin wanted to name Ponomarenko as his successor, because of his honesty and organizational ability. He prepared a Presidium on the subject, but died 1 day before it was scheduled. The documents where Ponomarenko was named as Stalin's suggested successor were destroyed by Kruschev. Ponomarenko himself was demoted to increasingly insignificant posts, such as ambassador to Nepal.

>http://www.aif.ru/society/history/15351

“The decision to murder Comrade Stalin was taken simultaneously with the decision to murder Comrade Kirov. With this aim in mind, the center organized a number of strictly conspiratorial, terroristic groups in Moscow. In order to unify the activities of these groups, the All-Union Trotskyist-Zinovievist center created the Moscow center comprising Bakaev, Reingold, and Pikel (Zinovievist) and Mrachkovsky and Dreitzer (Trotskyist). The immediate organization of the murder of Comrade Stalin was entrusted to Bakaev. At the investigation, Bakaev confessed his role as the direct organizer of terroristic acts….

From abroad, Trotsky who was directing the activities of the All-Union united Trotskyist-Zinovievist center, has used every means at his disposal, especially after the arrest of Kamenev and Zinoviev, to speed up the murder of comrades Stalin and Voroshilov. He has been systematically sending directives and practical instructions through his agents concerning the organizing of the murder.

Dreitzer, a man close to Trotsky, formerly serving as his bodyguard, a member of the Trotskyist-Zinovievist bloc, confessed at his investigation that in 1934 he had received a written directive from Trotsky regarding the preparation of a terroristic act against Comrades Stalin and Voroshilov.

He reported the following:

“I received this directive through Stalovitskaya, my sister, a permanent resident of Warsaw, who traveled to Moscow at the end of September 1934.

“The contents of Trotsky’s letter were brief. It began with the following words:

“My dear friend! Please pass on the information that the following main tasks are on the next day’s agenda:

“First task: the removal of Stalin and Voroshilov.

Second task: the organization of cells in the Army.

Third task: in case of war, to make use of confusion and failure of every sort in order to seize power.”

"Based on a pilot in the glorious USSR, young Stalin earns his reputation by being the stuntpilot of a highly secret aircraft of the soviet airforce. He gains his nickname due to the death defying feats in which he purposefully stalls his aircraft in midflight. Vodka isn't the only thing that powers his rotary engine, this hilarious but family friendly tear jerker is exactly what we've been looking for" - Rotten Tomatoes 85%.

>In real life however he was simply following the party line, and praying he didn't get shafted as well

I think you might be literally medically autistic and unable to read subtleties in expression, because that is exactly what the movie portrayed. Notice when Molotov is talking about his wife he always has this defeated tone, and then when Beria reveals her in the apartment his attitude does a complete 180. Of course he's not going to tell the leader of the NKVD, and the one who put his wife away, to his face that his wife was innocent.

I know what it means, to withhold assent or approval/to differ in opinion (Merriam Webster) I just want to use big boy word to sound like a smarty smarty.

They also allow you to profess your religion but not your acceptable socialist political beliefs which is probably in part because state atheism is hard to enforce, but that's hypocritical, but eh.

I've read it and there's nothing to back that freedom up. There's nothing giving people to the opportunity have a second revolution if everything goes to shit, you really wish you could have had a 2nd amendment when Gorbachev got in right?

I don't know. It is just a movie. Worse than the movie itself was the reaction of russian "patriots". (Stalin has a cult in the russian burgeois "patriotic" propaganda)Nikita Mihalkov, a famous russian movie drector, was one of the main critics of the movie. Altough he directed many anti communist movies (for example Utomlyonye Solncem 2), where is Stalin depicted like some old degenerative ogre.

How is it worse. they just banned the film. Mikhalkov is no longer a major figure and the whole thing was blown out of proportion by Western press. The movie was terrible crap, and Mikhalkov's hypocrisy aside, its stupid to show dumb political humor, especially to the people.

Ah yes, as we all know all of the victims of the purges, such as the certain members of the intelligentsia, and how they either simply spoke up to Stalin or were just trying to teach the man Hegel, and how truly evil those people are.

Except they did. the 2nd amendment does not stop that, owning guns does nothing against a T-80B. This isn't like a video game where, if you shoot the big armored target with enough bullets it'll eventually get through. Not to mention that people actively tried to stop Gorbachev, and were killed for it. Armed revolt wouldn't have done jack shit when the majority of Gorby's faggotry was done behind the scenes. The People DID attempt to stop it when they became aware of it, and this revolt was crushed with brutal, bloody force.

You can argue semantics but that is individual and not systemic. Farming Co-Ops and Industrial centers were given basal supervision and otherwise maintained themselves, giving only reports to the central government so as to make decisions and accumulate votes for them.

Free Speech and other rights are all in both of the constitutions of the USSR.

>a fake goebbels quote(find it in the diary if you can)

Trotsky's name is written Trotzki in German, and a Trotsky follower would be a Trotzkist.

April 22, 1938: “Our clandestine radio transmitter from eastern Prussia to Russia is creating an enormous sensation. It operates in Trotsky’s name, and is causing Stalin plenty of trouble”

“Now we work with three clandestine radio stations in Russia: first Trotskyist, the second separatist, third Russian-nationalists, all criticise Stalinism. They are an example of cunning and subtlety.”

After July 1941 Goebbels moved the volumes of his diary from his study into the vaults of the central Berlin Reichsbank due to the risk of air raids. From that point the rest of his diary was not written by his hand but dictated to someone who wrote it down and later typed it. It was no longer entirely personal and secret after that.
