Chris Morris' Four Lions is a funny, thrilling comedy that illuminates modern jihadism through the prism of farce.
It understands jihadists as human beings. And it understands human beings as innately ridiculous.
What This Is Spinal Tap did for heavy metal and Dr Strangelove the Cold War, Four Lions does for the modern face of terrorism.
Director: Chris Morris
Starring: Riz Ahmed, Benedict Cumberbatch
