  • Lately outsiders are more likely to laugh at North Korea's despotic head than to think about those who suffer under him, and Kimjongilia is a welcome and necessary antidote to that impulse.

    September 1, 2010 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Built around interviews with more than a half-dozen North Koreans who fled their country but can't shake its hold on their imaginations.

    March 19, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Arguably the most dysfunctional culture of the past few centuries, North Korea is a cosmically mad movie waiting to happen. But for now, Heikin's is merely insubstantial.

    March 16, 2010 | Full Review…
  • A classic case of a documentary filmmaker not trusting her material.

    March 15, 2010 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Watching these painful reports by escapees of starvation, concentration camps, torture, and killings is more frustrating than enlightening.
