Default The Vice Guide to North Korea (Stunning Documentery)

Personally, the subject of North Korea has been of increasing interest lately. Finding this documentary wasn't hard, but I figured that like almost every documentary I've seen, I'd be bored beyond my mind. Not so.

This film, which is available freely online (legally), is truly one of those eye-openers that just makes you want to see more and more and more. When you see for the first time just what the skyline of Pyongyang looks like, you'll feel for those people.

The USS Pueblo, still intact after all these decades, was a bit of a sight to behold. And some of the other things present are remarkable.

The museums and places he goes, it just seems so strange that such a country could hold something that neat. But it's all part of NK trying to keep it's "bright, shiny image" going.

The school, for instance, with these young kids doing all this truly great work made me realize that it's not because they want to, but because the state wants them to. It sort of made me feel... human? You know when you get that feeling that just feels... you know, human in itself. And you feel for these people because they're probably not doing what they want. Hell, they're probably doing this to keep the state from throwing their parents into prison.

Anyways, my ramblings are no substitute for the actual thing, enjoy:

North Korea, for all I know may be a really pretty country with as many bells and whistles as a Christmas choir, but it has the same problem that causes most motor vehicle accidents. The nut behind the wheel.
