Borat- Some Humor is Too Sophisticated
I haven’t seen Borat yet but I intend to. I have seen the character on the Da Ali G. show so I am familiar with him and of course I have already seen various clips online. In addition I have read many reviews of the movie.
In fact I was a bit surprised by how favorable the reviews were. I had suspected that the critics were going to savage the movie.
Many of them use terms that suggest that this is very sophisticated social satire and some have lauded the brilliance of the film.
Call me a spoilsport, but I worry that the very people whose prejudice and bigotry is being lampooned will not understand the joke and instead may appreciate hearing the validation of their bigoted views.
Just my two cents.
