Went to see Borat this weekend, and I just have one thing to say:
This movie takes you places you never, ever, ever, EVER EVER EVER wanted to go, and then goes one step further. And then another. And ANOTHER. It’s like watching a 10 car pileup on the freeway…you really don’t want to see anything, but you keep watching because you can’t stop yourself.
Words that pop to mind when I think back on that psyche-burning experience:
stop stop oh no they didn’t
they’re gonna kill him
what did he say??
omg he didn’t just say that
but he’s jewish!!
I would’ve killed him!
I think the fact that the way they filmed it, you’re not sure if the people he’s talking to are actors or not. I’m leaning towards not. I think they actually are filming people who have no idea that they’re being filmed for a movie. And that’s what makes those scary impending death scenes that much more scary…because I really think they would’ve ganged up and killed him if he’d taken another step. The dinner at the magnolia house was priceless though.
By the way…I laughed so hard it hurt. I just watched the trailer (I’d never seen it) and it made me laugh so hard I cried. But then I know what they DON’T show.
I’d have to say that you need to see this movie, but be prepared for anything. ANYTHING. Be warned.
