Just watched this on Apple TV. Truly a dark, funny, satire. The cast was great, and the dialogue seemed to be work all the way through.

A very positive recommendation......

I was going to see it but was too lazy... maybe on DVD.

I was going to see it but a friend said it was the worst movie he'd ever seen.

The trailer made it look semi-slapstick and hilarious. Alas, it was neither.

Saw it in the theater. Very funny and very dark. My girlfriend even liked it and would see it again.

How can you run and plot at the same time?

I had read that most of the movie was based on actual events such as:

1. His guards KNEW he was dying but were terrified to respond in time
2. He lacked good docs because he'd had most of the decent ones killed or sent to the gulag
3. His son was a real fuckup and he managed to keep him out of trouble (mostly) by appointing him a General in the Soviet Air Force

I had a great time - thought it was an enjoyable film.

It was dark, yes, but the period it covers was extremely dark. I think knowing a bit about that period in history the ironies and humor were very obvious to me, but most of the folks in the theater were laughing when I did, so the humor wasn't super-obscure.
