  • Some may find Longoria's wry tone offensive but his playfulness is what make him worth watching. If laughter kills fear, this man is quite the slayer.

  • In The Propaganda Game, the wildly surreal world of North Korea gets a fresh viewing, this time from the point of view of the only foreigner who works for the Communist government.

  • Longoria can't quite bring himself to denounce everything he is shown as a Potemkin village, although he is never left in peace to film without state minders.

    Feb 25, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Like the creepy neighbours in a horror movie who make weird banging noises in the cellar, North Korea has become a source of furtive fascination.

    Feb 22, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • This is a snapshot accompanied by counter-claims that lacks any real digging into either. It all means that The Propaganda Game feels strangely inconsequential.

    Apr 8, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Endlessly intriguing.
