Best For Film has finally Dreamed a Dream of Tom Hooper’s Oscar-baiting epic Les Misérables – and we loved it so much that we’ve decided to never ever see it again. Ever. From the tears and the music to the inexplicable facial hair and surplus of hats, this sprawling superfilm is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Of course he is.
Larry Charles’s outrageously offensive, all-guns-blazing comedy isn’t so much a sharp satire as an exercise in eccentric crassness. Lacking the edge of Borat and Brüno, The Dictator is nonetheless a disconcertingly amusing, predictably gross-out affair, packed full of memorable moments and reliant almost solely upon a central performance from everyone’s favourite master of grotesquerie, Sacha Baron Cohen.
Hands up if you think this whole thing has been orchestrated?
Chronically humourless Oscars bosses worried about Cohen’s planned red carpet stunt.
What do The Muppets, Ali G and Flight Of The Conchords all have in common? Apart from the occasional bit of humourous racism, we mean? Why the STICKY TOUCH of James Bobin, of course! Co-creator of Sacha Baron Cohen’s most famous character, creative brain behind the Conchords’ TV success and director of The Muppets – how on earth has this bloke stayed under our radar for so long? Probably the racist stuff, to be honest. CHEAT SHEET!
