Borat Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan

September 10th, 2006 · No Comments

Saw Borat the other night at the Toronto Film Festival.

Without a doubt this will be the most outrageous movie of the year. Can't wait to see it again when it comes out in theatres. Missed half the dialogue with the audience laughing so hard. There were two scenes that for some reason reminded me of the great Peter Sellers (Pink Panther series). You'll know it when you see it.

Here is Borat's arrival for the red carpet:

In case people don't get Borat, I found this to be a decent description:

“Make no mistake, at its heart, 'Borat' has a very serious message.
Cohen is too intelligent to leave anything to chance. The film, as well
as being hugely entertaining, should also be considered a textbook
example of how racism is as much a product of idiotic conformity, as it
is fear and ignorance. Amongst the 300lb naked men, enraged feminists
and Pamela Anderson porn videos, Borat's message about American society
could be lost. That it remains is no small achievement. 'Borat' will be
the most extreme piece of cinema you're likely to see this or any other
year. Bring on the backlash. Borat, do your worst.”

Full article is here but don't read it if you don't want to know about the movie before seeing it.
