Review

Joseph STALIN was the ultimate politician who led the Soviet Union from 1924 to 1953 and contributed to ending World War II in Europe. History also recalls him as a merciless killer who initiated the Great Purge. This film is a unique footage from May 3, 1953, presenting his funeral. The footage archive from the 50s have both black and white as well as color. It starts from Stalin’s passing with many stages of funeral, which is mostly unseen to many. The footage is rather calm in showing the people’s grief over the “Great Farewell” for two hours. Outstanding cinematic aesthetics, despite that most scenes were shot more than 60 years ago, along with the impressive, meticulous editing of vast amount of recordings and directing by Sergey LOZNITSA all make this film interesting to watch.
