  • 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.

    February 28, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Raising as many questions as it answers, Álvaro's film highlights how little we know of real life in North Korea, and how much propaganda from both sides continues to cloud international understanding.

    February 28, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The Spanish director Alvaro Longoria's documentary about North Korea is startling, comical and often horrifying but very even-handed.

    February 25, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    February 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.
