Friday marks the U.S. opening of Chris Morris' Four Lions, a feature comedy about a blundering gang of aspiring British Muslim terrorists who want to blow something up, maybe the Internet, but haven't a clue how to go about it.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight
Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
