Dear Dictator
7 October 2018 | by henry8-3See all my reviews

Rush is the pen pal of South American dictator Caine, who overthrown, comes and stays in her house where he teaches her how to rebel and lead and be her own person.

Enjoyable and often sharp comedy with all 3 leads giving enjoyable performances helped by a lively, irreverent script and some sly swipes at American politics.

Be warned, the scenes where Holmes has her feet sucked by her foot fetishist boyfriend are revolting, unless of course that is your leaning.

This got a very limited release and was inevitably a flop which is a shame. It was never going to win oscars but is underrated and could be seen as cult material in the future. Fingers crossed.
