Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (2006)
Kazakh journalist Borat Sagdiyev travels to America to make a documentary. As he zigzags across the nation, Borat meets real people in real situations with hysterical consequences. His backwards behavior generates strong reactions around him exposing prejudices and hypocrisies in American culture.
Wonderful character development!
just watch it!
The film creates a perfect balance between action and depth of basic needs, in the midst of an infertile atmosphere.
The movie however it has come out made me think it's real. I mean not all but Borat as channel representative, his producer, the incident of national anthem and last but not the least Pamela Anderson incident. It took me to google out for real anthem and profile of real actors along with frequently asked questions on imdb followed by number of votes to find out that this 1hr20min treat is 100% work of fiction. Yes I would have fallen for a culture with such values, even if it put me on my toes. Thankfully it is total fiction and impeccable treat of humor.Tone, Script & Story: The story how two people from a channel in Kazakhstan interview Americans for their uplift of their society.Direction, Screenplay, Cinematography: I fell for this work of fiction as described earlier. It is that good. Acting: Borat nails it. Other actors are incredibly well too.Final Verdict: It is an Incredibly Humorous treat challenging some of society's norms, but no worries thankfully as its fiction!
This movie took black comedy to its next level. It has lots of s*** jokes but even if it is too uncultured, it is still too funny. I couldn't stop laughing at most of the scenes. In some scenes i laughed so hard that water started coming out of my eyes. The story plot is simple, a man from Kazakhstan comes to USA to understand the American culture and take some valuable lessons back. Sacha Baron Cohen is a genius in doing such roles and no one could have done better. This is without a doubt one of the most funniest movies i have ever watched. If you love s*** jokes and are not offended easily, then this is a must watch movie for you.
I'm sitting in front of an open post for about 10 minutes not knowing what to think, let alone write. It left me speechless for a while. In fact, not movie itself, but hype it caused when it was released. For months I was listening about it, "It's hilarious. It's offensive. It's actually pretty smart as well", its screenplay was even nominated for Oscar... I was skeptical, but I would lie if I said I had no expectations. I expected it not to be as good as it was popular, but I really didn't expect complete crap. Out of the attributes mentioned above, it is only offensive. Don't get me wrong, I'm not at all against offensiveness. Quite opposite, I'm against today's aggressive political correctness and offensiveness is one of my favorite techniques in achieving humor. But if we are going to be offensive let's do it in the most hilarious way possible. If it's not funny then it's just offensive and just offensive is ugly. This movie offends not only Kazakhstan and Americans, this movie offends our intelligence. I admit, in preadolescence childhood I might find it quite entertaining, but as an adult... If they were going for "it's so bad that it's good" type of movie then I could forgive their failure cause that kind of movie is really hard to do right, but if they were just going for good comedy then I really have no idea what to say...4/10
