Borat: Gift of Pornographic Monkey to Vice Premiere Mikhael Pence to Make Benefit Recently Diminished Nation of Kazakhstan


Recommended Posts

He also did some filming in June: hiring the security for a right-wing militia event, then getting up on stage and singing a racist song. At the time I think most people assumed it was for Who Is America, not Borat. Clips in the US Politics thread, but I wouldn't click the song; it's an earworm!

It'll be on Amazon in late October. Exact date not yet announced.

 

They are trying to get it released the day before the election as priority.

 

SBC has dirt on someone in the Trump administration, I'm telling ye!

There's a reason why the alt-right like American History X but won't sing along to Springtime for Hitler. Much of the right wing nazi types are absolutely farcical and exposing them as such is absolutely a necessary tactic.

 

Mel Brooks knew it.

I haven’t gone back to the first one since seeing it in a packed cinema, but during the hotel fight scene I remember genuinely being concerned that I was laughing too hard and  for too long that I was maybe suffering a medical episode and not getting enough oxygen.
 

It’s a special memory.

I suffered that, as did  my mate Farmer Tim, when we went to see Dumb and Dumber in a moderately full cinema. We both thought we would die. On quite a few occasions...

Super pumped for this and am so glad it's happening BUT I do worry that times have moved on a little and SOME of the gags will be a bit awkward/cruel, which tends to be the more 'story' parts where no real people are involved. So the daughter character instantly raises a flag for me but hopefully it can come through, I just hope it's coming from a good place (whilst making fun of the racists of course)

Also there is a lot of potential for fun outside of the movie too. The original had the leader of Kazakhstan making official statements making multiple statements about the movie and Borat would respond to him in character with video/social media. I can easily see Trump getting angry about it and making snide public comments about SBC and Borat, so it will be fun to see how SBC reacts to them in today's age.

 

He's already started really;

I am reaaaaally curious as to why Netflix didn't get this. If the film is a topical/political surely Netflix would be the best way to spread it? I'm sure Netflix would have paid much higher for this? There must be something to it, like Netflix refused to air/review it so quickly or something.

Linked to this in the US Politics thread: Sacha Baron Cohen has written this article for Time about Trump, Facebook and conspiracy theories. He ends the article talking about the bit in the new film where he sang at the gun rights rally: it sounds like escaping from that was one of the hairiest moments of his career:

Nah mate, it's all about who paid the most. 

 

Netflix was a natural home to Star Trek Picard (Netflix being the home to every other trek show). Amazon stumped up the green and got it. 

 

Plus, between Amazon and Netflix I know who has bigger pockets.

Are any of the 'real' bits even real anymore? Obviously there are scripted story bits but even the bits where you're meant to believe that he's interacting with unsuspecting people look staged.

 

I remember when the review for Borat arrived, there were several journalists who had a hard time separating the scripted scenes from the non scripted ones. Personally I never had that problem as the scripted ones were quite obvious.
