  • In the Loop

    2009. Great Britain. Directed by Armando Iannucci. Screenplay by Iannucci, Jesse Armstrong, Simon Blackwell, Tony Roche. With Peter Capaldi, Tom Hallander, Gina McKee, James Gandolfini. It has taken ten years for the new millennium to produce a contemporary screwball comedy. With In the Loop, we finally have one, but now sex is complicated by military hardware. Literate, foul-mouthed, and paced like a heat-seeking missile, In the Loop is connected to the real world more authentically than any "reality show" on television. A British minister's public statement is misunderstood, Washington replies (sort of), and the entire Western world blithely heads for bedroom, boardroom, and disaster. Courtesy IFC Films. 105 min.
