In the Loop (2009)

Legitimately hilarious and incredibly smart. Iannucci handles multiple locales, a convoluted story and a cast of (nearly) thousands with remarkable deftness. Without hyperbole, this is one of the funniest movies you'll ever see.

In the Loop (2009)

Every character feels real and charming and lovely, with genuine emotions and reasons for behaving the way that they do. Definitely one of the best movies I've seen.

In the Loop (2009)

In the Loop is a fantastically human and charming descent into the intrigue and deceit of modern politics. The intense and stressful final act is an unavoidably sadistic set of body blows that leave you burned out and wincing. If you care about politics this is your movie.

Watched this drunk at 3am on a Saturday night. It's fantastic! Steve Coogan had me in fits. If you dig the UK Office and world politics, this is for you.
