Critic Reviews for The Juche Idea

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (6)

  • Meant to be a comedy, one that cuts two ways: mocking the strictures placed on moviemakers in both Communist and capitalist systems.

    May 27, 2010 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • In the director's hands, these societal passion plays and "documentaries" offer a terrifying, top-down perversion of art itself -- another insidious extension of politics by other means.

    May 26, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Jim Finn has managed to spoof not just easy-target Kim, but also the very notion of artists in residence making ever more obscure, inaccessible, and pretentious work.

    May 25, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Densely constructed and pretty damn brilliant.

    June 1, 2010 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • An unconventional and wildly imaginative combination of humor, satire and faux documentary as a delightful and refreshing medium to enlighten the audience about Juche.

    May 26, 2010 | Rating: 7.36/10 | Full Review…
  • Intriguing experimental feature takes playful aim at the North Korean propaganda machine.
