If there was ever a subject that doesn't translate well to comedy, it's the life of a suicide bomber. Yet somehow Britain's Chris Morris is able to twist this horrific act of violence into an absurdist comedy of errors.


Four Lions debuted at Sundance this past weekend, and in this teaser clip three jihadists are gathered in a room discussing a very large purchase of bleach that will be used in the construction of explosives. By making such a horrid act seem comical, it seems Four Lions is going into un-chartered territory. The jury's still out on whether it will be considered a comedic triumph, incredibly offensive, or both.
