After the media storm following the reveal of a pinnacle scene involving a rather compromising situation for President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani in the newly released Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, one man has come forward to defend the former New York City Mayor: Borat Sagdiyev.
In a tweet by the famed #4 journalist from Kazakhstan, Borat states,
“I here to defend America’s mayor Rudolph Giuliani. What was an innocent sexy-time encounter between a consenting man and my 15-year-old daughter has been turned into something disgusting by fake news media. I warn you, anyone else tries this and Rudolph will not hesitate to reach into his legal briefs and whip out his subpoenas.”
The sequel to the 2006 film, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan is very much a film that has many funny moments and some uncomfortable moments. Overall, though, the film contains lessons within that call out issues in racism, sexism, and holds a mirror up to society – blemishes and all.
Love him or hate him, Sacha Baron Cohen – through his characterization and planning – has once again created a winning film. Looking past the overt silliness of the character of Borat and the presence of satirical “mockumentary”-style presentation, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm gives audiences something to think about in the current climate and that, in itself, is very niiice.
Borat Subsequent Moviefilm is streaming now free for Amazon Prime members.
