Critic Reviews for Liberation Day

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (3)

  • 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.

    October 26, 2017 | Full Review…
  • There's even too little of Laibach's music, which in this performance is, by necessity, somewhat restrained.

    October 18, 2017 | Full Review…
  • [Its] withholding, intended to maintain Laibach's mystique, contravenes the ostensible documentary function of the movie.

    October 18, 2017 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    October 18, 2017 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    November 22, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • An immensely engaging, smoothly edited (with clear music-video influences) and highly polished account of an event that became historical simply due to the fact that it took place.
