BORAT SUBSEQUENT MOVIEFILM
2021, Amazon Studios, 95 min, UK/USA, Dir: Jason Woliner

Subtitled DELIVERY OF PRODIGIOUS BRIBE TO AMERICAN REGIME FOR MAKE BENEFIT ONCE GLORIOUS NATION OF KAZAKHSTAN, this satire on Trump’s America follows a Kazakh journalist (Sacha Baron Cohen) who is sent to the U.S. to deliver a gift from his government to Vice President Mike Pence. Along the way, his worldview is turned upside down and steadfast beliefs are challenged by his teenage daughter (newcomer Maria Bakalova).


MATCH
2014, IFC Films, 92 min, USA, Dir: Stephen Belber

Adapted from his 2004 play, writer-director Stephen Belber’s engrossing character-driven drama centers on Tobi Powell (Patrick Stewart, outstanding here), a Juilliard ballet instructor who has been asked to do an interview about dance in the 1960s. When the interviewer (Carla Gugino) shows up with her husband (Matthew Lillard), the man starts asking Tobi some very personal questions and it soon becomes clear that their visit has nothing to do with choreography.
