Movie Review: In the Loop

In the Loop is a British satire that follows various under-secretaries and their staff as they deal with Americans in the lead up to a war. It's never said it's Iraq but it's clear that's what they're talking about. It is fast paced and hilarious. The cursing is fantastic.

The accents took a few minutes for me to catch on to and the dialog is as rapid fire as an old Billy Wilder flick. Every minute or two was an absolutely riotously funny line. This will be one of my favorites of the year, go see it.

Update: I saw this again last night and it's just as good. As of August 1st, this is my favorite film of the year.
