Borat May Be Banned In Russia

In a presumed show of solidarity with its neighbor, Kazakhstan, Russian film officials are threatening to prevent the satirical movie, Borat, from screening in Russia. The film, in which actor Sacha Baron Cohen portrays a bumbling, anti-Semitic Kazakh “journalist,” has been denounced by Kazakh politicians, who are upset at the portrayal of their little-known country as a backwards backwater.
