Film Review: BORAT: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan

by Pat Johnson

WARNING: this movie will make you afraid of your fellow Americans.

With a mix of absurdist character comedy, reality television and shock-u-mentary filmmaking, Borat will offend, shock, amuse and terrify everyone who goes to see it. Plus, it will make you laugh, one way or another. Even if your laughter is the nervous, "I hope no one sees me," "this is really awful," "I can't believe I found that funny" type of gut buster. This movie is almost beyond description, which is exactly why you should drop what you're doing, grab a friend (trust me, you'll want to talk about it after) and plop your butt into a theater seat right now.
