Borat: Cultural Learnings of America to Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan

(USA, 2006, 82 minutes)

A boorish, misogynistic, anti-Semitic journalist from Kazakhstan is sent to report on American cultural mores. A sketch TV character is expanded into a full-length feature by way of a loosely threaded set of “candid camera” episodes whose offensive innocence turns out to put up a very disturbing mirror to contemporary American society and makes for distinctly uncomfortable, if often hilarious, viewing.
