Comedy gold!

This is absolute comic genius and has to be one of the most hilarious British films in years. The script has to be one of the funniest in cinema you're ever likely to see and hear and easily containing some of the most quotable lines too.

In The Loop's attention to detail is really the driving force in the film. Every segment about the upcoming war is spoken about and brilliantly wri... read more

A richly comic example of what can be done when portraying the ludicrous tribalism and confusion that is the hallmark of modern politics.

The core topic was a little late to the table since the invasion it alludes to had already taken place and that topic was so complicated that it could barely be fit into a series of films let alone one.

Iceman, the alcoholic source ... read more

A great movie

I heard many good things about this movie so I was really curious about it but, honestly, I didn't expect it to be that good. Indeed, it is the most hilarious movie I have seen in years, it is that good. I'm usually really critical about comedies but this one was just a real riot, especially the first 30 minutes. There are some familiar faces (Tom Hollander, James Gandolfini, Steve Coogan) and som... read more

The film is drawing instant comparisons to great political and absurdist comedies like DR. STRANGELOVE, WAG THE DOG, THANK YOU FOR SMOKING and MONTY PYTHON. With razor-sharp, truly laugh-o ... (more)

" The Plot:The US President and UK Prime Minister fancy a war. But not everyone agrees that war is a good thing. The US General Miller doesn't think so and neither does the British Secretary of State for International Development, Simon Foster. But, after Simon accidentally backs military action on TV, he suddenly has a lot of friends in Washington, DC. If Simon can get in with the right DC people, if his entourage of one can sleep with the right intern, and if they can both stop the Prime Mi"

The core topic was a little late to the table since the invasion it alludes to had already taken place and that topic was so complicated that it could barely be fit into a series of films let alone one.

Iceman, the alcoholic source for the case for war was an unsubtle nod to the (now infamous) source Curveball who provided the wafer thin ice on which the Iraq invasion was floated. There are enough echoes of the Iraq debacle to hint at it but this is more generic and perhaps will seem prescient in the future when the next inevitable land-grab is launched by Washington.
