Tough Being Loved By Jerks

The incredibly timely history of French humor publication Charlie Hebdo is recounted in this evenhanded documentary. Director Daniel Leconte spent months covering the defamation trial of editor Philippe Val—which was, of course, rendered moot by the religiously motivated attacks that left 12 people dead and 11 wounded. In addition to profiling the people behind the startling headlines, Leconte manages to untangle the international political, ideological and media-related issues swirling around the controversial publication. In French with English subtitles. 102 minutes Unrated.
