In the Loop


bloodyminded

Recommended Posts

After years of mostly lacklustre war/politics films, the British decided to get it right. In the Loop is one of the best political satires I've ever seen. It's all about the insiders: American hawks (and one dovish General), British political careerists eager to tamper with the facts to give the Pentagon its war; leaks to the press, personal ambition, handling political fallout, and lies and self-delusions at every turn.

Its confusion and chaos, hilarious but with a definite feel of accuracy, belie the myths of sober leaders making cautious moral decisions about war.

Zero action, 100% talking heads...but more profanity than I've heard in any movie since Casino. And it's funny as hell.
