Beautiful cinematography. I'd've liked more of the Aung San Suu Kyi interview(s), if there was more footage, and much less of the very stereotypically centre-right white American male point of view in the narrative. Still worth watching but I would have rated it higher if the narration was a bit more neutral; I appreciate documentary filmmakers having points of view, but in my opinion the narration was presenting opinion as fact a lot of times.

An interesting look at one of the most isolated countries in the world. However, at times, it becomes too repititve and would have better a bit shorter.

A peek inside one of the most closed countries in the world. Very well done.
