You like very much Yes?
There are several excellent reasons for watching BORAT.
We need to understand that our present era of Political Correctness is a mirage that has failed miserably and may actually be strengthening prejudice and ignorance.
The blatant anti semitic, homophobic, sexist and xenophobic demons that live in our day to day world are brilliantly exposed in this film.
The tender, vulnerable, underbelly of the status quo are eviscerated with the skill of a surgeon's scalpel by Sacha Cohen's character Borat.
This movie is a wake up call to all of us even if
Borat shone a very harsh, bright, light in the not-so-dark corners of the American Heartland. The cultural cockroaches that scurried out were very disturbing..
most of which are still ((sigh)) unfortunately universally practised around the entire planet.
Before you blow a gasket I realise that most Americans are not guilty of being the dumbass rednecks revealed in the film.
The fact that there are so many of them is what may be terrifying to some..
but it is the worst kept secret on the planet.
Cohen's defense of such outlandish parody is that indifference is one of the culprits.
He is the grandson of a Holocaust survivor and rationalised his approach during an interview in which he stated that apathy is a devious enabler that allows these old hatreds to fester beneath the surface..and as he has proven whether through his alter egos Bruno, Ali G or Borat, that it doesn't take much to release them.
Perhaps this comedic expose may help clean up the collective denial concerning some Americans and their refusal to comprehend why the rest of the world 'does not prefer' to be subjected to Uncle Sam's interference in their domestic affairs...
never mind the imposition of 'American' values which they view as the Pot calling the kettle Black.
Critics of the film are aghast with indignation and will probably never be able to understand why the rest of the world displays such contempt for the US?
It also revealed that in this Information Age, the YouTubian 24/7 world of instantaneous ego parades, that you and your stupid ideas are all fair game. Nobody is exempt from making a complete ass out of themselves.
Several scenes deftly reveal how both pretentious pseudo-respectability, manic spiritualism, and blatant, jawdropping, 'good-old-boy' ignorance all deliver well deserved embarrassing retribution to their creators...
that they can never take back.
That includes all of the knuckleheads that have launched lawsuits against the Producers of Borat..
you made your bed and no amount of money will ever restore your dignity..Neener!
Lets be honest, putting any culture or country under a microscope is as dangerous as it is depressing.
The reason that the disrobing of the 'U.S.and A.' is so rewarding should be obvious. The shameful veneer peeling of the Nation in which many, certainly not all, of its citizens consider themselves God's Gift to the rest of the world is UBER schandefreude!
If you have ever wondered how a transparent Trojan Horse like the 'great warlord' George W. Bush was elected to the highest office of the greatest Civilization in History.... TWICE??.... watch this film.
