Kazakh TV talking head Borat is dispatched to the United States to report on the greatest country in the world. With a documentary crew in tow, Borat becomes more interested in locating and marrying Pamela Anderson.
A documentarian funds a NYC doorman's Asian mail order bride in exchange for the right to film the experience. But when Lichi arrives in America, she finds herself married to a recluse with a penchant for sadistic sexual role-playing. Objectivity flies out the window when she and the filmmaker become involved. Twists and turns are plentiful in this tragi-comic love triangle where all is not what it seems. Written by
I just happened to catch this movie at 4a.m. and I couldn't believe what I was seeing. This movie had me totally fooled until the credits. I thought this was a real documentary. What made it even more real is that Jose Canseco is in the film and plays himself. I was in absolute amazement until the credits rolled. And that's when I realized this was fiction. The acting by this cast was phenomenal, especially Eugenia Yuan and Adrian Martinez. They made it too real. Also the cinematography (if you want to call it that) was great as it was filmed like a real documentary. For sensitive viewers, the story may be too real and can cause an uncomfortable feeling. Some of the material is very serious (which makes it seem even more non-fictitious). But the story line has you in suspense from beginning to end.
