The Lovers and the Despot ★★★½

MIFF 2016 Film #15 - Hell of a story, with good source material in the form of tapes made of meetings between Kim Jong Il & the South Korean director subject.
Rare stuff.
Pacing wasn't great though. They could've told it more concisely & kept me from micro-snoozing throughout the second half of the documentary.
I'm surprised that it sold out such a big Hoyts cinema, and so early after the release of the MIFF schedule.
An engrossing topic that would certainly keep me awake under normal sleeping conditions.
