‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’ Preview
The original Borat mockumentary featured Sacha Baron Cohen playing Borat Sagdiyev, a fictitious journalist from Kazakhstan who traveled through the United States having real-life interactions with Americans. Baron Cohen earned a Golden Globe for the role and the film earned a Globe nomination for Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, and an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay.
The follow-up mockumentary’s full title is Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan and it once again features Baron Cohen as Borat Sagdiyev. Despite having said in years ago that he retired the Borat character, Cohen was spotted in late 2019 and in the summer of 2020 filming several segments for the movie, which was officially announced in September 2020.
The film is already generating controversy over a scene featuring Rudy Giuliani where he is interviewed by Borat’s daughter, Tutar, played by actress Maria Bakalova. Tutar represents herself as a conservative journalist in order to interview Giuliani and when said interview is over, he leans back on the hotel bed and sticks his hand into his pants. Then Borat runs into the room and says, “She’s 15. She’s too old for you.” But the actress is in fact 24 years old.
Giuliani tweeted a statement in response to the controversy, writing, “The Borat video is a complete fabrication. I was tucking in my shirt after taking off the recording equipment. At no time before, during, or after the interview was I ever inappropriate. If Sacha Baron Cohen implies otherwise he is a stone-cold liar.”
Other fake interviews and appearances include Baron Cohen interviewing Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, interrupting a meeting of the Conservative Political Action Conference, tricking the attendees of a Georgia cotillion, playing pranks at a gun rally in Olympia, Washington, and filming unknown scenes in Los Angeles.
In a review, the BBC’s Nicholas Barber said that “it’s the ripped-from-the-headlines relevance that makes it so fascinating, and it’s the boiling rage at current politics that makes it so bracing,” and Chris Hewitt of the Minneapolis Star Tribune said that unlike the first film, this one “is a satisfying narrative” rather than a “collection of skits.”
Borat Subsequent Moviefilm is out now on Amazon Prime.
