So, I attended a screening and director/writer/cast Q&A of Chris Morris's four lions a week or so ago. It's a comedy about four aspiring terrorists who are all hapless and three of the four are outright imbeciles. Here's the trailer. I enjoyed the film a lot despite it's more farcical nature than Morris's usual stuff, which is largely incisive satire on the often absurd state of the media. As terrorism is an issue which stirs a lot of feelings in many people, I think this and the predictable polarizing reaction to it is a good talking point for where boundaries should be in comedy. Should there be any at all? I think that it depends on the intelligence behind the material, as someone like Morris tackling these subjects is a far more considered effort than some fat racist making black jokes in a club. However, I'm completely aware that such a view is quite subjective! Is it therefore flawed? So yeah, drawing the line in comedy. Where and how?
