Mini Review - In The Loop

In The Loop (out Jan 21) is a satire about an English politician who foolishly makes a comment that war is "unforeseeable". It sets in motion a series of events that may lead to an invasion of the Middle East. The film goes overboard with its insulting one-liners and there isn't a single likeable character but it does raise some interesting questions about "behind the scenes" politics. Grade: B+.
