A quite realistic portrayal of what's to come, Frankly, Look Who's Back is not quite funny and/or tragic as the US election campaign where a wannabe dictator (Trump) faces a ruthless neoliberal (Clinton). Nothing gets more farcical than that.
Quite imprressive way to understand what is happening in Europe. First we ignore them, then we laugh at them, then we fight them, then, as we can see in history, they win. I still can not believe I laugh at Hitler.
While the premise is interesting enough and could be used for a good political and sociological satire it just falls flat on its face whenever a joke is about to climax. Written like someone is trying to get the ideas they have from their head but who just can't seem to construct a smart joke.
Mha, che brutto. Non mi è piaciuto per niente, e forse è perché odio i falsi documentari alla Borat, forse perché son rimasto deluso da un'idea che poteva essere perfida e sparare a zero e invece... e invece è una roba che vorrebbe essere una commedia ma non fa ridere, vorrebbe essere satirico ma non colpisce con abbastanza decisione, vorrebbe fare luce sull'ascesa di tanti nuovi Hitler e invece non è così incisivo.
The screwball "Borat"-esque antics of the first half of the film are easy to write off but better taken in as a goofy fish out of water comedy with little stakes or consequences. But as it progresses you are invited into a less and less comedic view of propaganda and a fairly terrifying view of the ease of influence on a tired and fearful population. Can easily be mirrored in political feelings around the world.
You don't have to watch this one for long before it shows its fangs. There also comes a point at which it stops trying to be funny. It simply sinks its teeth into everything and takes a very. Big. Bite.
Truthfully, I've got mixed feelings afterwards and a question about "what if it's true" keeps popping up, but hey, really, take what's positive from it and leave another one. There a lot of life-lesson we can take from this one
