Sexy in Kasikstan
How easily offended are you? This is a crucial question you need to ask yourself before committing to seeing Borat. Those with a delicate disposition need not bother as they will only feel queezy and shocked and want their money back. I know cuz I watched to see how many people got up to leave and to my amazement, only a few did so.

My take on Borat, such as it is, is that it is f---ing brilliant! Any documentary, film, book, article or photo that make people look really hard at themselves and their notions of others and the world is A VERY VERY GOOD THING!!! And Borat challenges everything ridiculous we accept as true and every notion we have held as correct.

Sacha Cohen, an English Jew, is my favorite new hero! Apart from being funny as hell, he is so brave as to be stupid and throws himself into the fray of any uncomfortable situation AND THEN pushes the limits beyond your imaginings. He tests and tests and humiliates and pokes fun and all the while places himself directly in the line of fire.

I am surprised the guy hasn't been lynched, beaten to a pulp, castrated and burned at the stake. There are certainly enough bigots and small minded folks out there to take umbrage to his antics.

Borat was a side splitting show from start to finish. Don't take your Mum or you Aunt Milly as your relationship will never recover. The Mole, SNAFU and I talked non-stop about what we had just seen for 35 minutes (all they way home) and have since been emailing comments to each other since.

Go on then....do it. Go see Borat and then tell all your friends to see it. Its one of the few movies to be worth the $9 that I've seen in years.
