Four Lions - DVD Review


Starring Riz Ahmed, Arsher Ali, Nigel Lindsay, Kayvan Novak and Benedict Cumberbatch.
Directed by Chris Morris.

This British satire gives Islamic extremists the appropriate kick in the teeth. Four friends have decided to engage in jihad, but they can't decide what to blow up, or why, exactly. It goes down some dark roads, but I admired its head-on approach to its subject matter, and it hits its target more than once.
