"...Mr. Compston's untamed star power gives the movie a heart, a sweetness that makes the title heartfelt and not just cheaply ironic..."

And it proves that smart and funny can exist in the same movie..."Rolling Stone "In direct contrast to the sober realism of Ken Loach's political films, say, it's a bluntly confrontational approach, but it does have the desired effect of exposing the ugly truths lurking behind the satire."Film Comment "[A] biting political satire about politicians and their operatives involved in a campaign to promote a war....The film features some witty performances..."USA Today "Violently verbose and startlingly impolite, with shovelfuls of obscenities, IN THE LOOP is the most savage, biting political satire on the big screen in years."Los Angeles Times "[I]t's the hilarious tumble of words -- the sly cultural references, astonishingly creative invective, the veritable arias of profanity -- that gives the film an unexpected heft."Wall Street Journal 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[T]his ink-black comedy of war and how to stop worrying and love the spin is devilishly clever....[Iannucci] keeps the dialogue coming fast and furiously funny."Rolling Stone "James Gandolfini is aces as a red-meat U.S. general..." -- Grade: A-Entertainment Weekly "It's a cavalcade of wit and verbal virtuosity, highlighted by some of the most inspired use of profanity this side of David Mamet..."A.V.
