Satire at its most superb

The sado-masochistically inclined Baron Cohen has hit upon a new vein of great mockumentary-meets-political satire stylings with an absolutely endless swathe of classic comedic and cringe-worthy moments.

He also threads the chronicles of his road trip across the States together with a funny side-story, but its those moments of bewilderment on the faces of his 'prey' that make the movie.

Had he cut out some unnecessary over-the-top staged scenes between himself and his sidekick this could have been worth a full five.
