In the Loop

Posted by lostincci on April 16, 2009

CMCI academics Dr Richard Howells and Dr Harvey Cohen enjoyed a preview screening of “In the Loop”, the Anglo-American political comedy-satire directed by Armando Iannucci and starring (among others) James Gandolfini.

There’s a lot of (hugely enjoyable) high calibre swearing combined with razor-sharp personal insults, and there has been much speculation on how much basis this film has on real people and real events.

But Drs Howells and Cohen warn that this is a satire and not a documentary (despite its deceptively authentic fly on the wall style). But you can’t help wondering…. And the timing is perfect.

“In the Loop” goes on general release April 17th.
