    It's almost impossible to get authentic footage and interviews out of North Korea. The level of access Mr. Gordon receives for this film (following his favorable depiction of North Korea in the soccer-themed "the game of their lives" documentary) allows for a truly unprecedented viewing experience.

    Admirably non-judgmental docu about life in "the least visited, known, understood country in the world," per Brit director Daniel Gordon, brings a refreshing balance to the usual blind vilification of the country.

    One leaves the film with the Twilight Zone sense that the place isn't quite the hellhole prior reports have suggested.
