I love this film.
Four Lions, 11 years on, has become a classic British comedy / drama, as far as I'm concerned.
Riz Ahmed, Craig Parkinson, Nigel Lindsay, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kayvan Novak and Adeel Akhtar are all superb.
The Dancing in the Moonlight scene as well as many others are not only hilarious, but carry a sad undertone.
The ending was just as powerful as it was on a first watch, perfect blend of political relevance at the time and comedy to make a tough third act.
Four Lions isn't a 'silly' comedy. It takes thought and intellect to make a movie that tries to capture why some young Muslims turn to terrorism but also add dark humor and plenty of laugh-out-loud moments.
