A-Z #82: Four Lions

You can pick up hundreds of DVDs for a round-pound each - it doesn't matter. It's never about quantity, it's about quality. A-Z is my way of going through my collection, from A-Z, and understanding why I own the films ... or you can tell me why I should sell 'em

#82 - Four Lions 

Why did I buy it?

I didn't. Second half of a Christmas present from Bangor Rep/Bruvva Graham. It really is a great film and I thoroughly loved it when I first watched it and, to rewatch it again, I believe it will get better and - most importantly for a comedy film - it will get quotable. 

Why do I still own it?

Not only is it a great film to think about and discuss - indeed Chris Morris researched the nature of terrorist cells and, actually, how stupid they truly are (a boat carrying too many people and bomb equipment sank...) but it is endlessly rewatchable. If someone comes round my flat and tells me they haven't seen it ... then, we will be watching the film that evening.

  1. Itching to see it - can't wait!

  2. Just picked it up myself last week and have already watched it twice!

  3. @Dylan - believe me, I think you should love it ... as long as the Birmingham accent isn't too difficult to understand.

    @Tom - ive watched it a couple of times myself and its funny but much more profound and personal then it lets on!
