I espeically liked the scenes taking place at the United Nations. There ia a perception that diplomats act differently within the walls of the Organization but \"In the Loop \" shows how quickly they shed that aura of statesmanshp and return to thei\\r true nature of petty politics and boorish behavior.

A funny look at how wars are decided on by armies of bureaucrats in different countries who are wasting huge amounts of taxpayer dollars (like many bureaucrats do).

Putting everything else aside, I deplore movies shot in "Cinema Verite" (hand held/shaky camera technique). Unless you bring a bottle of Excedrin and sea sickness pills with you, STAY AWAY! The other aspects of this film are as equally pathetic. Next time, add a Steadicam to your budget!

I loved this movie... but I can totally see why other people's ratings were so low. In the Loop is VERY audience-specific. If you are looking for a fantastic plot, this is NOT your kind of film. The movie is a sort of comedy of errors, and its humor comes from political and cultural references that are often obscure. (I laughed at several jokes that no one else in the audience got, and
fleirio about the worse movie I'v seen in a long time. Bad enough that we walked out.I wanted my money back. Everything Martin 21 said I agree with.
