In an age when political assassinations are once again making news, Ryan White’s compelling documentary targets the outrageous killing of North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un’s brother at Kuala Lumpur International Airport. Even compared to the daring stealth tactics of Russia’s FSB, the assassination of Kim Jong-nam in a crowded airport terminal in 2017 was audacious. A fierce critic of North Korea’s current leader and seen by some as a possible usurper to the throne, it’s no surprise that Kim Jong-un’s sibling was murdered. But the brazenness of it was nevertheless shocking. White’s film not only recounts the actual event but how those held accountable – Indonesian Siti Aisyah and Vietnamese Doan Thi Houng – were expendable players in a grim political game. Gaslit by forces knowingly setting them up for a fall, White’s film is a chilling account of politics played out in a ruthless arena. ★★★★ "A gripping story, well told by documentary film-maker Ryan White" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
