Brüno (2009): review- 6.5/10

Extended satire, using a documentary format, on fashion, flamboyant homosexuality, reality television, celebrity, and conservative American values, with some spontaneous silliness thrown in for the apparant hell of it.

The effect is rather "spattergun", and undirected, but almost always entertaining and often extremely funny.

Though "Bruno", has much of "Borat"'s naivity, he lacks his charm, and the film seems driven by a real anger against contemporary sillinesses.
