"A nasty, profane, and utterly bracing black comedy... As political satires go, this is almost up there with Dr. Strangelove."--Glenn Kenny, Premiere Magazine

The most controversial South Korean film of 2005, The President's Last Bang is a violent and ironic dramatization of the most seminal event in the nation's recent history: the assassination of President Park Chung-hee in October 1979. Set during a dinner party for the President, the night turns bloody when the entertainment (a pop singer and a budding starlet) arrives and the head of the Korean CIA announces his intention to kill the President. (35mm, 102 mins.)
