I just watched the freakiest doc on a journalist's trip to North Korea.  You get the sense that the guy expected to tell a particular story and ultimately did so, but the sheer strangeness of that society creeps out from the edges even beyond that.  Early in the film he describes a visit to the DMZ from the South Korean side.  I spent a few days in Seoul in 2005 and visited there as well, and the atmosphere is exactly as he describes.  Strange and very tense at times.  Anyway, in case it sounds interesting to anybody:
