''the death of stalin'' black comedy

I really enjoyed this dark and quirky film . A good cast of British comedians /actors . So many good parts played by the characters. Buscemi , beale and Considine to name a few off the top off my head. Very dark humour and plotting guaranteed throughout !

Well worth a watch folks. :)

Actually may be the very same helmet pictured John. There is a seller who listed this picture that is now just offering up the wappen and bosses with strap. Maybe he realised the helmet wasn't right but the boss/wappen were. Where did your friend purchase it from , any idea ?
