As fascinating for its depiction of the swirling rainbow geometries of the Mass Games spectacles & the disciplined girls' training to participate in them, as for an extremely rare glimpse into the repressive, near-Orwellian North Korean society. Equal parts Man On Wire and 1984; one of the most memorable documentaries I've seen. ★★★★★
Well shot doc concerning an interesting (and fascinating) aspect of North Korean life and culture, dictated by the state's ideology as we know. Personally attractive because i don't think that "the subordination of the individual's desires to the needs of the collective" is something despicable in a mass society, but, I point out, with all the reservations due to lack of informations of this still unknown country.
