The Day Shall Come is the latest film from Chris Morris, the maker of Four Lions, and tells the story of an FBI counter-terrorism entrapment scam. In this episode I talk with Kit Klarenberg about his criticisms of the film, some of the reasons why creative compromises were made to make it more accessible, and whether Morris succeeded in his intentions and ambitions. We also discuss several examples of counter-terror entrapment operations in both the US and the UK, and why so many of them take place.
