The President's Last Bang (2005)

Maybe if I knew thing one about the recent political history of South Korea, this film might prove to be the blistering black satire its champions claim it to be. But I don't, so the appeal is lost on me. I wish I had something interesting or useful to say about why it didn't work for me beyond that simple, ugly fact or that I could at least bring something to the table regarding the film's thematics (such as its invoking the spectre of physical rot as a stand-in for moral rot), but I'm at a loss. Sorry. This review sucks.

Grade: C
