Abstract [en]

This article focuses on how critical reviews of Bulworth can be said to draw attention to political discourse when discussing the film's satirical aspirations. This entails a consideration of contemporary American reviews, which are discussed in relation to a conceptualization of satire in terms of a discursive practice. It is concluded that satire is understood, in quite unproblematic terms, both as a determinant for and as attributing a tone to the political discourse.
