Borat, the Film

Borat, from the Glorious Republic of KazakhstanYesterday night I saw this film the posters of which are really all over the city. After the initial hilarity and dicks-and-prostitute-laughter, I stayed behind with only one burning question, that kept me thinking through the night and into today.

Is this all fiction, or is it real? Or is it a mixture of the two, and if so, which parts have just been written like a screenplay. Just to clarify myself for the less comprehending reader. I do off course know Borat is actually a British Jewish guy and all, and that the parts in Kazakhstan are in fact filmed in Romania, but…

- does Borat really go out in the arena to pervert the US national anthem?
- does he really invite a hooker to a dinner party, or is even this dinner party fake?
- ...etc. etc. etc.

Some people might say that it doesn´t matter very much, but it changes the whole significance of the film! If most of these parts are real, than it gives an interesting look at the inner workings of the USA. If not, than what the hell (if anything at all) is Baron Cohen trying to show?
