Rudy Giuliani Scene In 'Borat' Sequel Seizes Political Attention

NPR critic Bob Mondello, who has seen Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, says:
"The Giuliani scene takes the form of a hotel suite interview with actress Maria Bakalova, who is impersonating a television reporter. At one point the actress suggests they continue the conversation in the suite's bedroom and Giuliani agrees. He is then seen sitting on the bed as she helps him remove his microphone, untucking his shirt in the process. After a cut, he lies back on the bed, and reaches into the front of his pants, at which point Borat, wearing an outrageous pink getup, rushes in, interrupting them."

Time To Deflate Photo

The Stannard Rock Lighthouse in Lake Superior, Michigan is known as ‘The Loneliest Place on the Continent,' the structure is 24 miles from the nearest shore. I wonder if the lighthouse keeper wears a mask.

  1. Hi Lisa,

    As a Great Lakes lighthouse buff (Captain of the Fox Island Lighthouse Association on Lake Michigan) I have to tell you that the Stannard Rock Lighthouse was automated in 1962 after an explosion of several fuel tanks in 1961, which killed one of the three lightkeepers. No face masks needed there.

    Thanks for keeping us posted in these troubled times. Keep it up, gal!
