It's a movie about a monster dying and the people around him fighting to become the next monster, with things like ego, insecurities, and good old pettiness getting in the way. I loved it. Is funny but not in a way that makes fun of all the awful things that these people did. If anything the movie knows how to make fun of the people while educating us or reminds us about the brutality of that government.
The characters are despicable assholes, in some cases morons and the movie takes a lot of fun on portraying their scheming as desperate and a few times childish. Despite all of the main characters being awful and not having anyone to root for. They are so motivated and just desperate, that is never not compelling to see them go against each other. Plus the insults are top notch.
Is dark, bleak, hilarious and I loved it
