SC Movie Review 26

In the Loop (Spin off from The Thick of It)

This film is one of the best films I have seen in ages, it truly made me laugh out loud all the way through the film (much to the announce of the other cinema goers i'm sure).

It's basically a behind the scenes look at the US and British governments who are trying to wage war on a country. Spin, swearing and stupidity are rife, I don't know whether to laugh or cry because imagine if this sort of stuff really went on. Oh dear, it does and could quite possibly have happened in the period before the Iraq war. Jeez.

Anyway, ignoring that scary thought there are hundreds of funny moments in the film, most notably instigated by Malcolm Tucker. He is a senior member of the press officer in the government and is a tyrant to his fellow government officers one memorable quote is here

"I'm going to tear out your shinbone, split it in two and stab you to f**king death with it"

It was directed by Armando Iannucci, has Tony Soprano and Steve Coogan also had a small amusing part. What more do you want?
