Festival year: 2011
Satirical comedy about four British suicide terrorists eager to make a grand Jihad gesture, but not exactly cut out for that kind of work. Film critic Kevin Toma believes this is as shocking and hilarious a movie about degenerated religious fanaticism can get.
Director Christopher Morris fights terrorism with a very effective weapon: humor. The four failed terrorists undeniably tickle the audience’s funnybone. Four Lions shows us that apart from being ideologists, these suicide bombers have quite simply gone berzerk.
