Meet the new Doctor Who - Peter Capaldi - at this 35mm screening of the hillarious British comedy IN THE LOOP.

From Armando Iannuci (VEEP, THE THICK OF IT), IN THE LOOP stars Capaldi as Malcom Tucker, chief spin-doctor for the British Prime Minister.

With two countries on the brink of war, it is up to Tucker to navigate the murky waters of international politics and help keep America and the UK out of yet another Middle Eastern conflict. James Gandolfini and Anna Chlumsky co-star.

A.O. Scott of the New York Times raves: “GENIUS. A sharply written, fast-talking, almost dementedly articulate satire on modern statecraft. The audience is likely to die laughing…By far the funniest big-screen satire in recent memory.”

Melissa Anderson at the Voice agrees: "HILARIOUS. An acidly funny satire about politics and pomposity.

The zing and sting of the film's dialogue harks back to screwball comedy, but the frequent flourishes of profanity throughout suggest its own genre: screw-you-ball.”

The praise continues from critics around the country.

"SCATHINGLY FUNNY…a smart sophisticated comedy.”
-Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

"****! One of the sharpest satires in years...Hilarious and uncommonly intelligent”
-Elizabeth Weitzman, NY DAILY NEWS

“ALL HAIL GREAT SATIRE. A riotous transcontinental political face... madcap on the surface, and underneath brutally and uncompimisingly sane.”
-David Edelstein, New York Magazine

“BITING AND HILARIOUS, IN THE LOOP is satire with the ring of truth...This exceptional ensemble cast meshes beautifully.”
-Marshall Fine, Huffington Post

"EVERY ACTOR IN THE CAST IS TOUCHED BY THE COMIC GOD."
- Mick LaSalle, SF Chronicle

"THE MOST SAVAGE, BITING POLITICAL SATIRE IN BIG SCREEN IN YEARS."
- Michael Ordona, LA Times
