2. February 11/12, 2010 - In the Loop (2009)

I didn't really love this movie. The humor is too dry for me, plus I am definitely not a fan of the stark, almost minimalist style that it's shot in. It's not quite documentary-style, since there is no hand-held camera work, but it's done with very little traditional lighting, no musical score, and very little interaction between the camera and the characters (no close-ups or things like that). Not the way I want to watch a movie. I want to be immersed in the story, not reminded that I'm outside. That all being said, I do think that the writing is fantastic. The story is tight and the dialogue is fast and sharp.
My Netflix rating: 3 stars
