The Dictator (2012)

"Why are you guys so anti-dictators? Imagine if America was a dictatorship. You could let 1% of the people have all the nation's wealth. You could help your rich friends get richer by cutting their taxes. And bailing them out when they gamble and lose. You could ignore the needs of the poor for health care and education. Your media would appear free, but would secretly be controlled by one person and his family. You could wiretap phones. You could torture foreign prisoners. You could have rigged elections. You could lie about why you go to war. You could fill your prisons with one particular racial group, and no one would complain. You could use the media to scare the people into supporting policies that are against their interests. "


  1. That's from the film? Interesting - who's he say that too? And how's it compare to Borat or Bruno?

  2. It's more in common with Ali G In Da House than either Borat or Bruno in that everybody's acting and nothing is performed with a hidden camera with real people. Also, a lot of it is extremely offensive and in very bad taste. However, as the above quote demonstrates (which is delivered to a room full of UN delegates), it's not without its razor sharp satirical undertones; and a lot of it is really, really funny. Well worth watching!
