Bruno



Just saw Bruno, the film creation of comic genius Sacha Baron Cohen. Bruno is a flamboyant Austrian TV reporter who goes to Hollywood in search for fame. In this film shot in a documentary, Cohen sets himself up in different situations with clueless strangers and finds out how they will react against his blatant show of sexual outlandishness.


To some gay activists, Bruno is a step backward to how society will accept the gay men. To some including me, Bruno is an expose on the intolerance of American society on the queerness of gay men.


Whichever side you're on, you'll most likely have a big laugh on this film.

he attacked the sexphobia of American society and brilliantly so -- naturally the anti-sex gay activists would oppose it as any puritan would!
