Borat is a terrific, risky comic creation: a village idiot for the global village.

A TV reporter from Kazakhstan, a country that as pictured here makes Tobacco Road look like Park Avenue, Borat comes to the United States and discovers everything you always wanted to know about America but were afraid to ask.

Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (20th Century Fox) Starring Sacha Baron Cohen. Directed by Larry Charles. Rated R. Time 85 minutes.
