A uniquely disgusting spit

The Death of Stalin is such a clever movie, which uses some of the worst people in modern history to say universal things about the use of power and influence, and features an all-time great performance in Jason Isaac's General Zhukov, but one of my favourite bits is when Rupert Friend spits on himself.

There's something so gross about it, such a huge gob of a thing, and the way it lands right on his hairline is particularly disgusting. But it's also immensely funny, because he's spitting on himself, and says more about dumb people doing dumb shit that only hurts themselves than a thousand lines of dialogue ever could.
