In the Loop

Spin City: ‘In The Loop’ Finds The Black Humor On The Road To War

“Where d’ya think you are, in some f---ing  Regency costume drama?” snarls Peter Capaldi, the rapidly twirling, rabidly frothing spin-doctor at the center of In the Loop’s storm. No worries – there’s absolutely no mistaking In the Loop for a well-behaved Jane Austen comedy of manners, zombies or no. Instead, the searingly funny and frighteningly close to home In the Loop comes clad in the pitch-black-humored, corrosive satire of Jonathan Swift’s A Modest Proposal and Barry Levinson's Wag the Dog.
