BORAT - Soundtrack

(Full title: "Stereophonic Musical Listenings That Have Been Origin In Moving Film BORAT Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan") – and you thought the movie title was long!

If you're unaware of the Borat phenomenon (even if only for the controversy in his fuzzy wake), you probably don't pay much attention to the various screens we're subjected to. Born on the small screen as one of Sacha Baron Cohen's off-center characters, Borat is the politically incorrect Kazakhstan TV presenter whose exploration of American culture is a minefield of faux pas and beyond. On this, his debut big screen outing, Borat traverses America in search of his true love, Pamela Anderson! Hilarious and a cringe-fest all in one, you sometimes catch yourself feeling guilty laughing at his outlandish behaviour and ignorant disasters. This soundtrack is a mix of Eastern European style folk music (by Erran Baron Cohen), Borat dialogue extracts and other tunes like the Born To Be Wild cover by Fanfare Clocarlia, as well as Korcani Orkestra, Stefan de la Barbulesti, O.M.F.O.’s cheesy electronic tunes, and the rip-off Kazakhstan anthem.
Then there is the very beautiful Ederlezi by Goran Bregovic (used so brilliantly in the film Time Of The Gypsies).
Just like the DVD release’s disc was printed to look like a burned pirate copy, the cover design of the soundtrack looks like a low resolution laser print.
