REVIEW: In the Loop

Most aptly described as The Office takes on West Wing, In the Loop is an intensely vulgar, funny, and, for interns in the District, close-to-home comedy about a fictional war being orchestrated by the British and American governments. Perhaps the greatest charm of the film comes from the fact that it exclusively deals with the lower-level officials who lack the title or competence of the big-wigs, yet still wield bogglingly tremendous amounts of power. Be prepared for a dialogue driven plot so full of awesome one-line insults that I wish I brought a notepad. My particular favorites came from the two rival State Department assistants, and between the PM's Scottish enforcer and... well, anyone. This is absolutely essential to anyone who has ever worked in D.C.
