    Save the Green Planet! is a bleak and bizarre comedy about a young man who kidnaps a corporate mogul because he believes him to be an alien, from a race that should soon arrive and destroy the human race. Just how much of his story is true and how much is demented delusion? It can actually be read several ways, and the film toys with your sympathies too. It's probably the choices I make, but Korean cinema seems to be where movies go to avoid predictability. In this case, the line between comedy and tragedy is very blurry and a tightrope walker might well fall off of it. Will the Green Planet be saved? Does it need saving? Does it deserve to be saved? Through all the blood and lo-fi sci-fi collages and quirky supporting characters, the movie does achieve a certain poignancy. It's certainly worth getting to the end just so you can examine your feelings about it. See you somewhere over the rainbow! 3 years 4 months ago
