25- Four Lions [9.0]
Four Lions tells the story of a group of British jihadists who push their abstract dreams of glory to the breaking point. As the wheels fly off, and their competing ideologies clash, what emerges is an emotionally engaging (and entirely plausible) farce.
The Dr. Strangelove of this generation. How could a film about jihadists possibly be this funny? Even with broad anti-US rhetoric and a handful of political statements, Four Lions somehow manages to avoid igniting a conversation about the War on Terror and the various viewpoints involved. Instead, it shows that, regardless of what nationality brings it about, nuclear annihilation could very well come at the incapable hands of some really, really big idiots.
