For a searing look at race and police violence in America, check out 2013’s Fruitvale Station (Saturday, 8.30pm, SBS Viceland). This debut feature from director Ryan Coogler, co-produced by Forest Whitaker, won the grand jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival. It is based on the true story of 22-year-old Oscar Grant, who was shot in the back by police on a train platform on New Year’s Day 2009. He later died of his wounds. Michael B. Jordan stars; he of course went on to play Adonis, son of Apollo, in the very successful 2015 Rocky movie Creed. The film which marked peak Sacha Baron Cohen, in this writer’s opinion, was Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (Saturday, 8.30pm, SBS) in 2006. Shocking in parts, sweetly sad in others, this mockumentary is about a Kazakh journalist who just loves Baywatch. The joke, of course, is on the everyday Americans who also feature, who really don’t know what to make of him. Also screening this week: American Sniper (Tuesday, 9pm, GO!), the excellent Clint Eastwood film from 2014 starring Bradley Cooper as the legendary Iraq War Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle, and Sienna Miller as his wife.
