A Kim Jong-Il Production: The Extraordinary True Story of a Kidnapped Filmmaker, His Star Actress, and a Young Dictators Rise to Power by Paul Fischer

Speechless. Nearly wordless. Ive been to Oz, but its Mickey Mouse who rules as a god-like Sun-King, the subjects know their lines perfectly to exalt His Majesty but if they miss a word or dont smile perfectly for the camera it means trouble. Three generations will be sent to prisons with sadistic guards and wormy rice, if lucky, or the degenerate who betrayed the beautiful ruler will be executed publicly. Everyone believes that they are the most fortunate people in the world; they see movies which show the destitute,destructive, pillaging white faces of the capitalistic West Witches attacking their homeland. Absolute loyalty assures greatness, the adored father god Mickey guarantees it and he is the forever hero living in a golden palace.

Looney Toones. A country shaped on movie plots... Yeah, I do feel crazy.

The Hermit Kingdom. North Korea. A famous South Korean actress and her husband covertly kidnapped to expand the greatness of Kim Jong-ILs cinematic productions, used initially to promote propaganda to the isolated citizens, but now wanted to make profit, enhance status, show other countries how North Korea has evolved.

Maybe not SO speechless. My husband: What is going on?, after hearing expletives, NO!, No-no-no, OMG, I cant believe it, Oh my oh my!

Korea once had had an emperor and had historically been the target and victim of encroaching nations, due to its strategic position. During WWII the Japanese captured and demoralized the country, but afterwards the USA and Soviets decided to split the country in half and act as stewards in its recovery. This led to the first Kim-IL (Sung), as dictator, to his appointed son Kim Jong-IL, and to the present Kim Jong-Un. Their mandate was always to reunite both Koreas, and led to the Korean War of 1950-1953.

After eight years of being hostages in North Korea, in various states of discomfort and luxury, Madame Choi and Director Shin gained the Great Rulers trust sufficiently to travel to Vienna, lightly guarded. Three years of judicious flattery, movie making and careful observation led to their chance dash to freedom at the US Embassy, in 1986. They were the first reliable witnesses of Kims habits and behavior to make their way into the hands of the American national security agencies.

Paul Fischer has researched extensively and personally interviewed Madame Choi. The information in this book is staggering, though it seems to flow by as easily as humorous historical fiction at times. Along with bankrupting the country and engaging in criminal activity for financing their personal gain, the Kims sociopathy is chilling when considering their ideology, known as juche. To their people, they are meant to be the absolute, supreme Great Leader, who must not be questioned. Media has been their means of inculcating the population, and its capital city is its greatest stage.

In some ways, I felt as though I was spying on something unforgivably illicit which was terribly sad, disturbingly fascinating and psychologically twisted. To understand North Koreas psyche and entrapment would take more mind-bending than I hope to ever deal with, but A Kim Jong-IL Production has certainly illuminated its image.

This surprised the Buenos Aires-born businessman as he was the victim in the true-life story of kidnapping, torture, extortion and, ultimately, redemption upon which the film is based. Instead, the film has been loosely based on a series of articles that ran in The Miami New Times in , which detailed the crimes of The Sun Gym Gang, a group of recidivist body builders who connected through a love of hard workouts and easy money. The gang conspired to kidnap Schiller, a former business partner of one of the men, force him to sign over his life and then kill him. Daniel Lugo, played by Wahlberg, was the conniving leader and according to Schiller a "lethal manipulator", while in the film he is nothing more than a vehicle for Wahlberg's now trademark brand of comedic tough guy. He almost had a neon sign on his forehead that said: 'Don't Trust Me. You never knew which Lugo you were dealing with.

But no matter the genre, you can always spot wildly familiar names in the film credits.
