There's a subtly meaningful power to what the film actually does: witnessing the awkwardness that ensues when the creatively free try to communicate with people who lack the context to understand unfettered expression.
There's even too little of Laibach's music, which in this performance is, by necessity, somewhat restrained.
[Its] withholding, intended to maintain Laibach's mystique, contravenes the ostensible documentary function of the movie.
By the time the film reaches its conclusion with a brief snippet of the band's performance, you'll be feeling as bewildered as the North Koreans seen watching it.
Most documentaries or studies of North Korea conclude that it is forever sealed in its own tyranny. For all the absurdity, for all the questionable semi-satire, Laibach actually made contact with North Korea and caused a crack in the wall.
If you like weirdness for weirdness's sake, you will appreciate all these colorful, unlikely efforts to exhibit East meeting West.
Throughout, the documentary wavers between a sincere investigation of the avant-garde music group Laibach and self-satire.
Whatever labyrinthine justifications stand behind it, Liberation Day is the kind of film that might never be made again, so I can safely say that you'll never see anything quite like it.
