|In the Loop – Featurette
IN THE LOOP is a smart new comedy and Sundance Film Festival hit from the acclaimed team behind the award-winning BBC TV comedy series THICK OF IT. The film is drawing instant comparisons to great political and absurdist comedies like DR. 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.
