01.11.10Netflix Like everyone said, the commentary made this movie better. Having the context for all the scenes explained (and I appreciated how they let Cohen and Charles pause the film when they needed to talk further, showing little picture-in-picture stills and clips to follow along with what they're discussing) make them more enjoyable... but you know... watching it that way just points out to me more the fact that this movie is a series of ideas they had (or sketches from the tv show) stitched together with clumsy exposition scenes or voice-over. As a narrative it's pretty weak. Mostly I think what the filmmakers said in the commentary is true: people like laughing at racist foreigners, but don't like laughing at gay foreigners. I do think there are some funny bits but overall the movie strains. It's also kind of weird how i've felt no urge to see Borat again. I wonder if I'd like it nearly as much a second time. Might have to rent it, if for nothing else than to see if there's a commentary track as insightful as this one.
