The Annual International Film Festival is on here at the moment, and that's always going to make a girl a little bit excited.
Yesterday there was a film I wanted to see. But 'twas in the afternoon, so I had to talk to the boss.
The conversation went something like this:
Kate:'Can I go and see a film fest film this afternoon?'
Sensible Kate: 'Of course you can't go, you've got work to do.'
Everyday Kate: '3.45? You were still planning on being at work at 3.45? Nerd.'
After wrestling with the voices in my head for about,oh, 0.76 of a second, I found myself nestled into my seat about to watch 'In the Loop.'
Because I am too lazy to paraphrase, this is how IMDB describes it, 'a foul-mouthed comedy that draws on non-specific events to create a world that is terrifyingly familiar: The US President and UK Prime Minister fancy a war, but not everyone else does...'
This is what Peter Bradshaw from The Guardian had to say about it “Horribly brilliant... The acting is superb, and the writing is relentlessly funny – vicious and delicious. And refreshingly, there isn't a sympathetic character in sight.”
Here's a wee sample.
Anyway I laughed like a drain. If you enjoyed the Australian series 'Frontline', then get yourself to this - pronto.
Crap, I've just oversold it, haven't I ?
