  1. anarresti's rating of the film The Propaganda Game

    We had Guy Delisle's 2007 comic, "Pyongyang: A Journey in North Korea". Delisle lived and worked for 2 months in North Korea and his approach is very personal. Longoria is careful, even if he contrasts the official propaganda and NK testimonies with press, politicians and NGO's testimonies and some historical background. He portrays North Korean with dignity, as much as Delisle was protective. Alejandro is creepy.

  2. Jeremy Ashlyn's rating of the film The Propaganda Game

  3. Partner in der Kriminalität's rating of the film The Propaganda Game

  4. Robert H. Stevens's rating of the film The Propaganda Game

    By this point, we've seen a few documentaries which take us into the cloistered regime, including a very good one from VICE featuring Dennis Rodman, but none which so clearly demonstrates the bewilderment of the filmmaker himself. You feel like Longoria is turning to you and asking "Do you see this, too?" A great film to give you a sense of what a trip to Pyongyang would resemble.

  5. Giada Marino's rating of the film The Propaganda Game

    Merita anche solo per il tizio Spagnolo convertito al regime.

  6. Bernardo Crastes's rating of the film The Propaganda Game

    I don't know what to believe in anymore. What I do know is that I learnt a lot from this documentary. It's unsettling and poignant, giving us an inside view of "the secret country" (one which I'm very curious about) while shedding some light on political and social matters, courtesy of very interesting interviewees.

  7. Waxamillion's rating of the film The Propaganda Game

    One amazing takeaway was realizing that no one wants North Korea to fail... other than maybe the people of North Korea... but who really knows. Interesting doc, creates more questions than answers but worth a watch.

  8. smndvdcl's rating of the film The Propaganda Game

    A docu-drama revealing the complexities behind the totalitarian regime in North Korea which challenges US propaganda just as much as NK's. The nuance here is astonishing - talk about challenging pre-conceptions...there are no easy heroes and villains, even if we frame it as such.

  9. Linn's rating of the film The Propaganda Game

    Really interesting documentary from the inside of the world's most hermetically sealed society. Of course in the end we still don't know what is really going on, so don't expect any answers to questions you might have about North Korea. Longoria's approach is to show the propaganda lies told on both sides by listening to many different voices, while, to his great credit, avoiding mindless bashing of "the West".

  10. Cid Medeiros's rating of the film The Propaganda Game

    Nothing is what it seems. Alvaro’s attempt is focused on the people of North Korea which is in the middle of an ongoing ideological war and a net of related interests. It succeeds in debunk some false stereotypes and placing human dimension as the real problem in contrast to the political scenario. An amazing opportunity to grasp in HD the monumental sites in Piong Yang as well as the people as they go by the streets

  11. Chichago_'s rating of the film The Propaganda Game

    I don't know which one is the truth and which one is a lie. I'm utterly confused.
