As a huge fan of The Thick Of It, I knew exactly what to expect from the film version of the political comedy and was definitely not disappointed. The film uses its unique fast-paced insult flowing satire to shine the light on the political world and the games which politicians all play.

Right from the off you are thrown into the world of Malcolm Tucker (the excellent Peter Capaldi) as he swears and throws insults at every turn. His encounters with American’s and visit to Washington only add more hilarity to the situations and make the insults even funnier.

In The Loop is satirical, witty and scathing in its comedy and that’s what’s great about it; it moves so fast and leaves you feeling as if you’ve seen a true insight in political life.
