Synopsis
BANNED & UNRATED -What You Couldn't See In Theaters!

The creators and star of Borat bring you the jaw-dropping comedy about what happens when the worldʼs worst dictator comes to America. Stuck in New York and stripped of his power, Aladeen (Sacha Baron Cohen) is finally forced to live his ultimate nightmare…the American dream. Get ready to laugh ʻtil it hurts with the uncensored cut, featuring never-before-seen footage, thatʼs “outrageous and shamefully funny!”*

* Rafer Guzman, NEWSDAY

The Dictator wants to inspire outrage and hilarity in equal measures. Sacha Baron Cohen rose to fame through Borat, a sort of Candid Camera movie that let real people reveal their prejudices in response to an outrageously conceived character. Here, Cohen acts in a scripted story about an equally outrageous character, a brutal dictator named Aladeen, ruler of the fictional North African country of Wadiya. While in New York to protest United Nations sanctions against him, Aladeen is kidnapped by a scheming underling (Ben Kingsley) and stripped of his beard, rendering him unrecognizable. A vegan co-op manager (Anna Faris, pretty unrecognizable herself in a black wig) takes him under her wing, leading to a change of heart… sort of. Cohen's lowbrow humor is oddly intellectual. He's a student of comedy, analyzing the current boundaries so he can push at them, seeking something that will still shock. The result? Jokes about rape--lots and lots of jokes about rape--along with an anthology of gags about body functions and racism. The effect is more calculated than comical. Cohen's deeply cynical perspective suggests that, in a world where everyone has a price (one of the movie's running themes), the audience will cheer on a murdering megalomaniac because at least his narcissism is pure. But The Dictator seems like a movie only a murdering megalomaniac could really love. --Bret Fetzer
