Jihadist comedy anyone?

That’s right. The ever-brave Chris Morris is understanding Jihadism in Britain with Four Lions (February). They are humans after all. Have a look at the clip.


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.
