In the Loop

very good political satire

in the loop is somewhat a behind the scenes expose of what happens in the modern political process, but it's a hilarious comedy! the leaders of the US and UK want to go to war in the middle east, and the only thing stopping them are facts. the film is very talky, and a lot of it is funny as hell. one british minister has an innocent remark about the possibility of war, and he gets thrust front and center in the debate. meanwhile he has seemingly miniscule problems with his few local constituents that may cost him his job. the film is very funny and well acted, other than james gandolfini who unconvincingly plays a peaceful general. it is easy to miss some dialogue because they all speak so fast, and there are plenty of british accents, but overall this film is great.
