The Oath (2018)
Critic Consensus: The Oath draws on hyper-partisan modern politics for a pointedly funny satire that hits its targets hard and often enough to more than achieve its desired discomfort.

Critic Reviews for The Oath
Barinholtz doesn't fully explore his dystopian premise and he doesn't make the best use of his cast. But The Oath has the scary energy of an all-too-plausible scenario.
A sharp, dark comedy could be assembled from all this stuff and nonsense. Note the word "could." It doesn't happen here.
For all the darkness and pessimism, there is a hopeful strain to "The Oath," if you're willing to pay close attention.
"The Oath" manages to raise the moral stakes along with the mortal ones, ultimately arriving at some pretty tough questions.
Wants to have its pie and eat it too - lobbing political hand grenades and then running away, refusing to engage in the consequences the scenarios set up.
