In 2010, a little film called 'Four Lions' garnered some press for being controversial. The film was a comedy about terrorism.


Viewers wondered how that could be possible, but writer Christopher Morris made his feature directorial debut with the outrageous black comedy about a group of young Islamic Brits who fancy themselves bloodthirsty jihadis of the first order.

The film showcases Morris's satirical talents at their vicious best in a scathingly hilarious indictment of true believers and the social systems that create them.

The 'Four Lions' controversy certainly garnered attention. It went on to win the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature at the L.A. Film Festival.

'Four Lions' is a unique film that shows that as much as terrorism is about fear, it is also about idiocy.
