Borat Kazakh Film of the Year?

Borat Borat
Nobody saw this one coming. After spending months trying to denounce Sacha Baron Cohen and his upcoming film, Borat, the Kazakh government has finally lightened up. Hell, they even sent an invite to Sacha to visit the country. But, in an even bigger move than that, one tabloid out of Kazakhstan has called Borat the film of the year. Now that's a sense of humor!

Borat Film of the Year in Kazakhstan

As Sacha has constantly told audiences and Kazakhstan, Borat is not anti-anything. The film is entirely about ignorance and, if it were to be dubbed with an anti-label, it is anti-American.

Cohen recently reminded a U.S. magazine that, "the joke is not on Kazakshtan."

Now that the country is beginning to understand that the joke is not really on them, they have begun to lighten up on their criticism. So much in fact that Karavan, a leading weekly tabloid, gave the film praise.

Cultural Learnings is certainly not an anti-Kazakh, anti-Romanian or anti-Semitic ... It is a cruelly anti-American movie. It is amazingly funny and sad at the same time.

I think this is the best film of the year.

Since Borat's sole mission was to find humor in ignorance and laugh at those who were, well, a little behind, it is good to see that the Kazakh's have shown that they also have a sense of humor.

If we can't laugh and point our fingers at racists, sexists, and plain up idiots, then who the hell can we laugh at?

Stay tuned for updates.
