EdieEmm's rating of the film Kimjongilia

Deceptively powerful. Those who won't like the choppy, slightly manic, mixed-media style should find enough weight in the actual content to make the movie worth their while. Animation, N.Korean kitsch and quirky propaganda provide effective - if amateurish - juxtaposition for the much heavier political/humanitarian themes of the film. Also, 1st interpretive dance scene in a movie that hasn't made me cringe.
