The Vice Guide To North Korea: Episodes 9-10

This is an outstanding documentary in which a crew of counter-culture types manage to get into North Korea and discreetly film the bizarre world of Kim Jong Il. Each segment is roughly four minutes, and it runs a great many parts, but the footage is incredible. The documentarians are straight-shooting and keep your attention, and I highly recommend setting aside the time to follow the whole film. I'll help by backdating the last few days worth of missed posts to allow for Sunday spare time...


Episode Nine: The Pyongyang Metro
The most lavish two-stop subway money can buy (from East Germany).

Episode Ten: The People's Study House
Headquarters of the North Korean philosopher hotline.
