Just plain propaganda
17 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a propaganda film, a medium that deserves contempt.

Though I may admire the cinematography and picture quality in "Triumph of the Will", the subject matter is so despicable that I must call it an awful film. This film is little better. It too is devoted to the cult of the Leader, and it too blames outside governments for its own faults.

Just because this film was made by a European film company does not qualify it as a "Gesamtkunstwerk". In no way does it transcend the political agenda of the North Korean government. Even as the NK Army sucks the blood from the people, they mouth endless platitudes for their Leader and blame all the starvation and misery on the capitalist Americans. Blah, Blah, Blah...
