The Taste of Money Reviews

Page 1 of 1
Robert Makin
Electric Sheep

A glossy, heavy-handed soap opera with all the complexity of a four-piece jigsaw puzzle.

Irish Times

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

Slant Magazine

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

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

PopMatters

The story bounces about in a fashion that's as chaotic as the film's visuals are placid, suffused with sumptuous malice.

A trite and tangled potboiler that, despite its polemical pretensions, is just a glorified Korean domestic drama with classier couture and shapelier champagne flutes.

The List

Im Sangsoo seems too much in love with what he seeks to condemn for The Taste Of Money to have real bite.

Little White Lies

This grotesque, luxe white-collar chamber drama from South Korea is often laughably bad.

Time Out
Top Critic IconTop Critic

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.

Dan Fainaru
Screen International

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.

This is a completely unenlightening cri de coeur against the most obvious targets of financial-spiritual discontent.

Todd Jorgenson

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.

Independent

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.

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.

This is London

It's ultimately wearing, yet somehow memorable.

Peter Bradshaw
Guardian [UK]

It is a strange slo-mo farce, well directed, highly sexualised - shallow, but sleek.

Mark Kermode
Observer [UK]

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