ruled by fear
27 December 2011 | by filmalamosaSee all my reviews

Although a lot has been written about North Korea seeing it in action engraves itself on your mind.

This is apparently a country where if you even look wrong at someone you are courting with life imprisonment of your whole family and death.

Of particular interest were the "minders" who were hostile bullies for the dumbest things...lying on the ground to take a picture (disrespectful!).

The scenes of the starving children were the most horrible... imagine what great meals those in the prison camps get.

This country is a psychotic nightmare in living color.

The Dear Leaders will hopefully get exactly what they deserve.
