Gareth’s Picks Four Lions (2010) Before Riz Ahmed and Kayvan Novak were who they are today, they starred in this satire about wannabe terrorists in England.  It takes a deeply disturbing world and somehow finds humor.  The acting is top-notch and the dark humor will make you laugh-cry.

Gareth’s Picks The Fog of War (2003) Errol Morris's searing documentary about Robert McNamara and the Vietnam War.  Miraculously, Mcnamara was more than willing to sit down and be interviewed for the film and it gives you a front row seat in the thinking around the war.  It is just as important now as it was in 2003.
