Here is my take on the movie Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.
I was brought up in Soviet Russia. I can attest that the movie is a great invention of a Western mind. There is nothing like that going on in Kazakhstan. But, look, there were a lot of things that we were taught about America. Most of them didn't turn out to be true, as I discovered when I came to this country 14 years ago.
As for Sasha Baron Cohen's movie, it will accomplish at least the following:
- A whole lot of people will learn that there is such a place on the Earth as Kazakhstan!
- Speaking with an Eastern European accent will become fashionable. We'll see more commercials with heavy accented dudes. Love them!
- I will go down in history as the first and maybe only artist who commemorated comrade Borat Sagdiyev in latex.
It took me 28 minutes and 31 Qualatex balloons, if you know what I mean.
Please forward this message to Sasha Baron Cohen with my compliments. LOL Thanks.
