In the Loop

Posted by martinteller on February 10, 2010

Absofuckinglutely hilarious.  I haven’t laughed this much at a movie in a long time.  Something like a hybrid of “The Office” and Dr. Strangelove, following around assorted British and American state officials on the brink of a war.  It’s hard to say that a movie with phrases like “lubricated horse cock” is understated, but it is.  It stays away from manic situations, slapstick humor and over-the-top caricatures and instead goes with a smart, incisive and incredibly witty script.  Pretty much everyone in it is great, too.  A very enjoyable satire.  I’ll be purchasing this one.  Rating: 9
