Rewatched this last night and i loved it. If you’re in the mood for passive humor, then you may enjoy this. The cast is brilliant and I think this is the first satire on the ussr? (Also the writer/director of this movie created Veep -- so caricaturing politics is his forte). I will say though it does lack something.

With the names behind this film I had high hopes that sadly weren’t met. It won’t stay with you like many of Iannucci’s other projects.
