The Red Chapel


Dir. Mads Brügger (2009).
Something like Lars von Trier’s Idiots transposed to North Korea, Danish documentarian Mads Brügger’s satire of cultural exchange is fascinating in part because it is next to impossible to figure out who is using whom although it does certainly seem as though the filmmaker managed to play the Dear Leader’s Stalinist terror state for a colossal stooge.
