Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm ★★★★

I saw the original Borat in theaters when I was 13 and later realized I enjoyed it only because of the cultural significance. Now, I’m 27 and think Borat 2 is the best comedy in years, let alone the best one in 2020. It’s a far better structure than the original and has somewhat of an emotional core to its nonsense. The characters are likable and the hidden camera work is noticeably more aware. As excruciatingly topical as it is, the movie succeeds in depicting the social shift of the coronavirus in real time and even finds common ground with various depictions of stupidity.
