In The Loop
is a smart comedy and Sundance Film Festival hit from the acclaimed team who created the award-winning BBC TV comedy series Alan Patridge
and The Thick Of It.
The film is drawing instant comparisons to some of the great political and absurdist comedies such as Doctor Strangelove, Wag The Dog, Thank You For Smoking
and Monty Python
. With razor-sharp, truly laugh-out-loud dialogue the film pokes fun at the absurdity and ineptitude of our highest leaders. With everyone looking out for number one, and the fate of the free world at stake (but apparently incidental), the hilarious ensemble cast of characters bumbles its way through Machiavellian political dealings, across continents, and toward comic resolutions that are unforeseeable.
