The Dictator


The Dictator
Sacha Baron Cohen is back with more blunt observations about human culture, or the lack thereof. We follow a bloodthirsty dictator who, after surviving an assassination attempt, is set up for the next one, which he also escapes, but ends up wandering around New York incognito. There, he meets and falls in love with a radical feminist. The plotline, as in Cohen's other films, serves mainly to allow him to express his opinion on different matters, seeking to shock and offend as many viewers as possible. Enjoy.

83 minutes.

What the Critics say

Die Burger
Laetitia Pople quote iconGeen heilige kamele vir broeder-leier Sacha nie.
10
Box Office
Nick Shager quote iconFleet, funny, and smart enough to not overstay its welcome, it's a commentary-coated R-rated comedy with supreme box office potential.
15
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconThe Dictator is funny, in addition to being obscene, disgusting, scatological, vulgar, crude and so on.

ScreenIt
T. Durgin quote iconBottom line. If you are not easily offended and have been a fan of Cohen's extreme humor in the past, you're going to really enjoy this movie.

Tomatometer quote iconWildly uneven but consistently provocative, The Dictator is a decent entry in the poli-slapstick comedy genre.
