Mahir To Borat, I Sue You! 275 275

An anonymous reader writes "The mockumentary Borat bears more than a passing resemblance to late '90s net celeb Mahir Cagri of, and he's not amused. Steven Leckart of Wired magazine gives him the third degree."

    But Cohen's displaced Jewishness fuels the comedy.

    A Jewish guy getting a room full of people to sing "Throw the Jew down the well" along with him. Surely that is the most telling?

    I think that bravery alone gives him carte blanche to provoke in any way possible.

    Ali-G and early Borat pricked British pomposity, now it's the Yanks' turn. He tried Ali-G in the U.S.A. but Ali's very Britishness worked against him. Borat is a fine vehicle, and Bruno too.

    Perhaps he'll do an American character now he's met more than a few over there!

In practice, failures in system development, like unemployment in Russia, happens a lot despite official propaganda to the contrary. -- Paul Licker
