On "Bruno"

From The Dispatch:
Cohen has a knack for satirical shock comedy, using humor as a blunt-force weapon of social commentary. And while his often crude sense of humor isn't always for everyone, what is always very clear is his immense comedic talent, pushing his subjects and his audiences out of their comfort zones to make a very real point. You're either in on the joke, or you're not, or you just don't want anything to do with it. How one reacts to his films says just as much about that person as it does about him. And for a comedy to have that many levels, both thematically and beyond the theater, is a fine feat indeed.
