    Four Lions (2010)



    Release Date: November 5th, 2010
    Studio: Drafthouse Films
    Director: Christopher Morris
    Screenwriter: Jesse Armstrong, Sam Bain
    Starring: Benedict Cumberbatch, Kayvan Novak, Nigel Lindsay, Darren Boyd
    Genre: Comedy
    MPAA Rating: Not Available
    Official Website: Not Available


    Plot Summary: Chris Morris’ Four Lions is a whip-smart, laugh-out-loud comedy that illuminates the war on terror through satire and farce. Four Lions proves that while terrorism may be about ideology, it’s also about idiots. In a British city, four men have a secret plan. Omar (Riz Ahmed) is disillusioned about the treatment of muslims around the world and is determined to become a soldier. This is the most exciting idea Waj (Kayvan Novak) has ever heard. Better still it’s a no brainer because Omar does his thinking for him. Opposed to Omar and everyone else on earth is the white islamic convert Barry (Nigel Lindsay). He’d realize he joined the cell to channel his nihilism – if he had half the self knowledge of a duck. Faisal (Adeel Akhtar) is the odd man out. He can make a bomb – but he can’t blow himself up just now coz his sick dad has “started eating newspaper”. Instead he’s training crows to fly bombs through windows. This is what Omar has to deal with. They must strike a decisive blow on their own turf but can any of them strike a match without punching himself in the face?

    This hasn't been released yet? I could have sworn I saw torrents for it like a month ago.

    The theatrical run is for the US. The film had ample success in the UK and at a lot Festivals as well, so its moving to cinemas over in America, I imagine that's why it's available on torrents and such. Similar thing happened with Monsters, cos they're low budget films/are unable to find distributors straight away they tend to float around for a while or have online/minor releases prior theatrical ones.

    Great film, worth checking out. I didn't think it'd work at all.
