Film documentary made in North Korea

Post by sushiman » December 5th, 2012, 2:59 am

It's like an alien viewed Western society and made a movie about it.

It's a very well made film even if you do not agree with the analysis of Western society. Who would think North Korea could contribute something so insightful? Watched the entire thing and I'd say it's the best film ever made on this topic; most we probably never see in the West, and the ones we do see suffer from bad production skills.

When North Korean women jump the boarder to China to be a hooker or wife of some Chinese you always hear those in the west condemning this. North Koren women have no real skills thanks to the endless energy spend on indoctrination so all they know is how to goose step, sing songs about Kim, do meth, clean and starve in there spare time. I say what about North Korean men - they have zero options, if they jump the boarder they are unwanted in China (South Korea too) they more than likely just get shot.

A yes North Korea is no match to the West's propaganda, Western propaganda and bullshit is far more efficient. And in my opinion the film understates just how good the West is at bullshitting and even a total idiot armed with Western propaganda is unstoppable even if he has no idea what he is doing or where he is going.

American women are mentioned at 1:13:00 and 1:19:00. The Great Leader does not approve of them. :P

I highly doubt this was made in NK and I've seen no such proof. If it was it would only be for foreign consumption. This would never be shown to locals. But like I said this was not made in NK.

What did you find so insightful about this movie? It's pretty ironic how it is propaganda itself.

Who doesn't already know about advertising, consumption, marketing, celebrities, and all that other bullshit already? It's not just in the West you see this consumption either. As you know, Kim Jong-il loved Western culture and products.

"Western propaganda" isn't even remotely close to how secretive and closed off NK.

If you are so easily influenced by the media and don't know where to get proper news, then it's your fault for being a mindless consumer...not some vast conspiracy.

I would imagine if this movie were shown to North Koreans, that many would develop a lust for the West. It does show all the vanity, bullshit, hypocrisy, and such, but to a starving people (or is that not true and propaganda too?) this stuff would look great I would think.

Speaking of NK, I have read that it is one of the handful of countries that doesn't have a central bank. Anyone think they are going to get invaded for that reason at some point?

I can agree it is very unlikely that film was North Korean made.
