  • Excerpt: To a dictator, the little things matter. For instance, imagine you begin instituting a nuclear weapons program and your top engineer designs the missiles with a round top, not a pointy one. That’s cause for execution.

The Dictator

High-Def Digest
21 August 2012

The Digital Fix
23 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Sacha Baron Cohen�s particular brand of provocative comedy comes undone in his latest venture, a disappointing satire of Middle Eastern politics that never really comes together. In attempting to move away from the mockumentary approach of previous films like Borat , Baron Cohen falls victim to an...

  • Summary: Sacha Baron Cohen is back but the meanness that separated him from the pack is missing. Yes, this one is funny, but the edge has been dulled.
