If there's one thing I admire in any film it is a good script and I can safely say that In the Loop is one of the finest comedies of the past years - and it's all because of a simply flawless screenplay. The satirical concept is brilliant, the dialogue is witty, the characters are hilarious and the performances are top notch. Armando Iannucci's In the Loop is British humour at its absolute best.
A hysterical and profane war of words mercilessly fronted by Peter Capaldi that acutely captures the conceit and chicanery of stale back-room politicos on both sides of the Atlantic and then proceeds to deride their credos into oblivion without ever missing a beat.
Within your 'purview'? Where do you think you are, some fucking regency costume drama? This is a government department, not some fucking Jane fucking Austen novel! Allow me to pop a jaunty little bonnet on your purview and ram it up your shitter with a lubricated horse cock!
This cinematic feature length version of British television series The Thick Of It turns out to be an absolutely brilliant political satire. Relevant, farcical and most of all painfully hilarious, the film boasts some great characters from the foul-mouthed tirades of Peter Capaldi right through to the awkward Chris Addison. Clever, biting and bonkers
