Borat Subsequent Moviefilm (2020)
IMDb rating: 6.9/10
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 85%
The Kazakh funnyman has returned to America, this time with his 15-year-old daughter in tow. That’s all you need to know about the plot of Borat’s latest endeavour, a laugh-a-second indulgence that may be the best one hour and 36 minutes you’ll spend in months.
Trump, the coronavirus, anti-abortion lobbyists, everything that has made life in the US in 2020 challenging, to say the least, is fair game for the sharp mind of Sacha Baron Cohen, who reveals the unabashed opinions, beliefs and attitudes of everyday Americans.
Salon.com says, “It is enormously entertaining and … a healthy treatment to whatever anxieties plaguing us a little more than a week leading up to the election. Whatever faults it has aren’t deadly”, and London Evening Standard writes, “Baron Cohen gets America. In fact, he gets the world. It’s a good thing someone understands us. In this time of trouble, the mirror held up by Sacha and co is just what we need.”
