Jason watches DEATH OF STALIN

And it's freakin' hilarious.

Actually, what's striking is how the story could be played completely straight as a political thriller. But they played it up for laughs by emphasizing the ludicrousness of the machinations for power after Stalin's death. And as an extra bonus, they play it in English, with casual, modern vernacular to emphasize how this ludicrousness fits in perfectly well with the politics of today. Ah, shit, now I made myself sad by realizing how today's politics is just like a bunch of Russian commie elites jockeying for power and killing each other over it.
