    Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

    ★★★★

    Jak się masz?

    How nice to see something that shaped my comedic life all of those years ago turn into a much needed source of levity given our derelict socio-political climate. With the exception of one of the worst movies of all time, Ali G Indahouse, I have relied on Sacha Baron Cohen to renew my faith in farce, satire, and compulsive respiratory rejuvenation ever since I was exposed to fitful bouts of gotcha political satire on his HBO show…

Much like another audacious but vacuous sci-fi outing, Inception, the film boasts dazzling visuals in service to a thin plot that's lacking any semblance of an emotional core. A cool concept is squandered in…
