Premiering Bruno

Sacha Baron Cohen, the mastermind behind Borat, this week unleashes the limp-wristed Bruno on theatregoers everywhere. While some gays are upset at the portrayal of the super-effeminate character, I feel just the opposite. Cohen’s act is obviously done with love, much like a drag queen’s lampooning of a woman. It’s an homage, not a mockery.

Bruno has been traveling the globe for movie premieres. And his outfits are ridiculous. The good folks over at Huffington Post have compiled all of Cohen’s looks in a slide-show. My hands down favorite: the pink felt catsuit he wore in Berlin. And because those Germans can be so naughty it obviously had a detachable pink felt penis. Obviously.
