Borat Subsequent Moviefilm took over the culture for a minute or two back in the fall of 2020, not just because Sacha Baron Cohen has a knack for this with his comedic stylings, but because timing is... everything. In the heat of an election cycle, Borat went for the jugular and put American culture on its heels once again.

We speak with the film's editors, James Thomas, Craig Alpert, and Michael Giambra, to learn how they saw it and pieced it together. 

All three of these guys have had amazing careers both with Cohen and on their own. They haven't just been cutting Cohen's work, but much of the best comedy to come from the last decade-plus. They talk about working with Cohen, working with comedic geniuses of all variety, and finding the keys to keeping a story that shifts between scripted and non-scripted working in all the most important ways.
