The Dictator (16-May-2012)
Director: Larry Charles
Writers: Alec Berg; Sacha Baron Cohen; David Mandel; Jeff Schaffer
A fictional African dictator finds himself faced with the ultimate culture clash when he decides to make a trek to an assembly of the United Nations in New York City.
Inspired by Muammar Qaddafi's rule of Libya, comedian Sacha Baron Cohen takes center-stage in this film as fictional dictator Haffaz Aladeen, a comically-childish and anti-Semitic ruler of the northern African Republic of Wadiya who decides to take a trip to New York to address the United Nations after their Security Council resolves to seek military action against his rule. Upon arriving in America, Aladeen embarks on a series of unfortunate mishaps ranging from his kidnapping to an encounter with a tomboyish co-op owner who teaches him how to masturbate, receiving a crash course in Western lifestyles all along the way.
