One of the things we can not but admit to Sacha Baron Cohen is even if you do not like his characters, they always succeed in attracting your attention. His newest character - Admiral General Aladeen certainly is no exception from this rule and he is as funny, as eccentric and provocative as you have expected.
"The Dictator" most certainly is not a film that everyone would enjoy. If you liked emblematic reincarnations of Sacha Baron Coen as Ali G, Borat,Bruno and you have no problems with the crude humor and you do not go to the cinema expecting to see Charlie Chaplin''s "The Great Dictator" you will most certainly enjoy yourself.
In case you are not willing to laugh at purely sexist jokes, maybe you will not be charmed. Actually the film has already succeeded in provoking controversial reactions in the public and in the critics and it succeeded in winning the definition Comedy of the year, but also very negative ratings. Actually "The Dictator" is not missing either laugh out loud moments, nor parody, or extremes. A fact that will not surprise the fans of Sacha Baron Cohen. The new amploa of the British comediant is not so much extreme as Borat or Bruno, but it is still his work, he is also a co-screenwriter and producer of the picture. The film is directed by Larry Charles with whom Sacha Baron Cohen works for the third time after "Borat" and "Bruno". Apart from his cooperation with the eccentric comediant, Charles is also known to the movie fans and as the director of the musical comedy "Masked and Anonymous", created by a screenplay from Bod Dylan.
The Dictator is certainly more fun than a political satire, but if that is in his plus we will let you decide for yourself. It is worth watching not only to see New York from the point of view of Admiral General Aladeen:"Twenty dollars a day for Wi-Fi? And they call me an International criminal" but also the american view of him:"I highly advise you to visit the Empire State Building before you or any of your cousins destroy it". So that you can be persuaded that everything can be funny as long as you look at it in the right side.
