The director seems uncertain whether he is making a slow-burning character drama or a satirical gangster movie about modern-day Seoul's answer to the Borgias.

It feels like Im intended this as a moral fable. He should have played for laughs; material this blunt works best as satire.

October 28, 2013
Sex, death, greed, corruption: they're all here in handsomely mounted and highly polished cases. Taste the money - smell the glove.

October 25, 2013
A veritable orgy of vulgar melodrama, The Taste of Money might pass as satire if the conclusions drawn were not so broad and unsurprising.

It's ultimately wearing, yet somehow memorable.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 24, 2013
It is a strange slo-mo farce, well directed, highly sexualised - shallow, but sleek.

This grotesque, luxe white-collar chamber drama from South Korea is often laughably bad.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
October 24, 2013
A glossy, heavy-handed soap opera with all the complexity of a four-piece jigsaw puzzle.
October 21, 2013
Im Sangsoo seems too much in love with what he seeks to condemn for The Taste Of Money to have real bite.

The story bounces about in a fashion that's as chaotic as the film's visuals are placid, suffused with sumptuous malice.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
February 4, 2013
It's a feast for the eyes that starves the brain, filled with unsympathetic characters and clichés straight out of Wall Street and other corporate thrillers.
January 29, 2013
This is a completely unenlightening cri de coeur against the most obvious targets of financial-spiritual discontent.

Both bitter and delicious.

For all the revelations about the way the rich operate, there's little juicy pleasure to be had in the proceedings.

Is there such a thing as "tastefully smutty"? Director Im Sang-soo's moody and semi-Shakespearian The Taste of Money walks that line with some artfully lit humping and cross-generational seduction.
May 31, 2012
As the sexual, financial and criminal shenanigans get ever more complicated, absurd and melodramatic, the film becomes increasingly tiresome; it's not even possible to enjoy its excesses in a 'so bad it's good' way.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
May 26, 2012
A trite and tangled potboiler that, despite its polemical pretensions, is just a glorified Korean domestic drama with classier couture and shapelier champagne flutes.
May 26, 2012
There is no real story to tell here, just a bunch of old fashioned, tired clichés spiced with references to various sensational front-page scandals, all of it reprocessed to look like an original script.
