Sean Kelly

My Thoughts on Brüno

You can say that 2006's Borat brought guerrilla filmmaking to a new level with Sacha Baron Cohen fooling many unsuspecting Americans to the point that he was sued afterwards.

Probably as a result, Brüno keeps it safe and at least half of the film seems to consist of mostly scripted content.

However, there are still plenty of real folks in the film and the results are at the same time quite funny, as well as very shocking (Sacha Baron Cohen is a brave man).

In the end, Borat was probably the more successful film, but Brüno still had the laughs.

8/10

About Sean Kelly -

Sean Patrick Kelly is a self-described über-geek, who has been an avid film lover for all his life. He graduated from York University in 2010 with an honours B.A. in Cinema and Media Studies and he likes to believe he knows what he’s talking about when he writes about film (despite occasionally going on pointless rants).
