the president's last bang (im, 2005)

From South Korea, the assassination of Park Chung-hee is played out as a thriller-comedy that's neither thrilling nor funny. Nicely shot, but seems to have been made by people who forgot why they were making the picture shortly after they began shooting it, except for a half-hearted attempt to make a Costa-Gavras agitation piece by way of My Wife is a Gangster.
