154 - The Death of Stalin
In Russia, movies review you! This deep dive into Armando Iannucci's "The Death of Stalin" ends up being a closer look Matt and Shahir's respective comedy preferences and tests the limits of their endurance when it comes to real-world horrors.
Adapted from the graphic novel by Fabien Nury, this slapstick slice of Russian history has us trawling Wikipedia as we try to figure out fact from fiction. We may not be experts on Russian history, but we know what makes good comedic stroganoff.
