Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Four Lions (2010)

Omar: Did you fix this then, Barry?
Barry: Yes, I fixed it!
Omar: Did ya? 
Barry: It's the parts... they're Jewish. 
Omar: What parts in a car are Jewish? 
Omar: Hmm? 
Fessal: Spark plugs. 
Barry: Spark plugs! Jews invented 
spark plugs to control global traffic.

A happy 10 to the terrifically funny jihadi-comedy Four Lions! I want to say this is the movie that "gave us" both Riz Ahmed and my beloved Kayvan Novak of What We Do in the Shadows fame (see plenty more of Kayvan here) but I'd actually seen Riz in something before Four Lions -- the great and under-appreciated British horror series Dead Set, which had a group of reality show people cut off from the world (a la Big Brother) as the zombie apocalypse happened outside. Wonderful show, would love to watch it again.
