Anyone else watch Camp 14: Total Control Zone?

It's a documentary about life inside the prison camps of North Korea. It's on Netflix.

Let's just say, it's pretty horrible.

1. Yes, I have! And the book was even more horrible. I mean the book was good but

it exposed the horrors even more fully. It's just unbelievable. It's so awful. There is a famine in NK going on again now and I have read news stories of fathers being convicted of killing and cooking and eating their own children. Unimaginable. Shudder.

3. There's a book it's based upon?!?!

Oh god, I didn't know that. Now I'm both tempted to see if the library has it, and also scared to read it.

2. Is it the story of Shin In-Geun? I just finished reading "Escape From Camp 14" last week.



Crazy stuff. I read everything I can get my hands on concerning North Korea. Which isn't much, but still. I don't think AMC could create a more dystopian place.
