Trailer: Bruno

June 22, 2009

I really liked Borat (I recently found it for 3 dollars and watched it again), so I’m really interested to see Sacha Baron Cohen’s next movie, Bruno (sorry, no umlauts here). Longtime fans of Cohen’s antics may remember Bruno from Cohen’s “Da Ali G Show,” where he interviewed prominent figures in the fashion industry. Cohen’s a real comic talent, and given the content of the Bruno trailers and the great early buzz, I’m hoping he’s going to strike gold again.


Cohen’s really going to have to hit another home run with Bruno, because it will prove that he’s not some one-film wonderboy, that he’s able to put together another film with creative situations and outrageous dialogue. Sure, he’s willing to push boundaries, but can he still make it funny? All signs point to yes. Larry Charles, the director of both this and Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazahkstan, had great ideas of how to direct a comedy then and this film should be no different. Will they both make a great comedy again? Here’s hoping.
