Thirteen pounds of black gold
On a lighter note from yesterday’s post, I wanted to express my opinions of Sacha Baron Cohen and his new film “Bruno.” He is a genius in his own right. He completely makes fun of people to their face, points out their superficial view of life or culture or religion politics etc., and mocks them. All the while they either don’t realize or prove his point exactly. Some people don’t like him, some think his movies are stupid, some think he is too raunchy, but I for one am a fan. So draw your own conclusions about what that opinion illustrates about me.
Plus you have to give him major props for having the discipline to stay in character for literally months and years at a time. I happen to think the guy is dedicated and funny at the same time. But underneath all the calamity is a guy who, I believe, really understands the ridiculousness of modern culture and in essence proves his own point by making ridiculous movies in which the very populous he is mocking pays millions in order to see their own trivialities pointed out. Genius.
Here is a link to a review of the movie, and since I haven’t seen it yet, I have to go by what this person writes. The review is actually halfway down the page passed all of the crap about what people at the premier were wearing, but I think it is good and some of the comments are good too.
Now I must go to check on movie times. 🙂
