The Death of Stalin is written/directed by political satire genius Armando Iannucci, creator of Veep and The Thick of It. Here, he casts his wicked lens on the rush to fill the power vacuum that happened when Joseph Stalin suddenly died in 1953. With actors like Steve Buscemi, Rupert Friend, Michael Palin, Jason Issacs, Jeffrey Tambor, Andrea Riseborough, and Paddy Considine (amongst many others) running around in this chaos, you’re pretty much guaranteed a good time. Listen to Chris, Beau, and Miguel give their review.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
