Borat Sequel On Amazon Prime October 23rd
In 2006, Borat’s very first movie, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan was a huge hit. After having great success, Borat was nowhere to be seen or heard from, until now. Borat Sagdiyev returns to the United States from Kazakhstan and this time he discovers more about American culture, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the 2020 elections.
Finally we have a movie to make your insides hurt, shed a tear, and cringe uncontrollably. Sascha Baron Cohen chose a great time to drop such a controversial yet entertaining movie, that will test how sensitive you are. Political correctness is not welcomed when you experience this film. I highly recommend easily triggered individuals to stay away. If you are laid back like I am, then this is a brilliant and ridiculous movie, so buckle up for a turbulent ride.
I have no clue how Cohen pulled this off so flawlessly, but I congratulate him for a job well done. It is time for the world to not be so easily offended by what is on their screen and just enjoy the movie for what it is. To my surprise, I thought this sequel was tamer than it’s predecessor, or maybe I am just used to his over the top antics 14 years later. Irina Novak, who plays Borat’s daughter, easily steals the spotlight and should have spin-off documentary film of her own. The plot is solid and put together well. You can tell that tedious planning and scheduling had to be executed to make sure that this crazy story was pulled off flawlessly. Expect to be shocked from the beginning to the very end as the story comes full circle.
I give Borat Subsequent Moviefilm an 8/10. It doesn’t go as deep as people think but there are plenty of unfortunate events, WTF moments and one big bombshell that will may or may not surprise you.
