Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (2006)

****
USA

Kazakhstani ambassador Borat Sagdiyev's half-doco movie film is sincerely nutty in a way that far too few American comedies have been seen the heyday of the Marx Bros. Beyond Sacha Baron Cohen & co.'s skilled skewering of an America that would gleefully lynch gays and Iraqi babies (as well as an America that would patiently tutor a guileless foreigner on the proper system for dispensing with faeces), it's a joy to watch a flamboyantly moustached funnyman wreak havoc on a mass scale with flawless timing and wide-eyed delirium.

dir: Larry Charles
wr: Sacha Baron Cohen, Anthony Hines, Peter Baynham, Dan Mazer, Todd Phillips
cast: Sacha Baron Cohen, Ken Davitian, Pamela Anderson, Pat Haggerty, Alan Keyes
