Given the picture of Cohen as Borat I will comment on his latest movie with the long name including Kazahkstan. ... Some one famous once said that humour is always at the expense of some else. And this may well be true when you think of how many jokes are sexist, racist, ageist, bigoted, etc. ... I laughed at the meta-mockery and marvelled at the way Cohen as Borat was able to get people to expose themselves. But my gut reaction is that this movie may do more harm than good on the long run even as it exposes racism and bigotry. I do not claim to know Cohen's underlying motivations, but the very success of this movie sanctions this kind of humour. And I cannot help feeling that some members of the audience totally missed the point and actually had their racist, sexist views reinforced.
