    REVIEW | Almost a Masterpiece: "Four Lions" an Explosive Comedy

    In the opening scene of "Four Lions," a group of British would-be terrorists attempt in vain to make the ideal suicide tape. It's not the first time that such risqué bloopers have been depicted in narrative form - both "Paradise Now" and the short-lived Showtime series "Sleeper Cell" contained similar moments - but it's certainly the funniest.

    Messy "Hesher" Disappoints in Sundance Debut

    "What do you think the rating's gonna be," "Hesher" director Spencer Susser joked as he took the stage after the film's world premiere at the Eccles Center in Park City tonight in Utah.
