Contrary to the English, as Dazed Magazine points out, North Korea really sucks at self-deprecation "the country has just submitted an official complaint to the UN over the forthcoming release of James Franco and Seth Rogen's comedy, The Interview.
In the film, Franco and Rogen play two undercover journalists who are recruited by the CIA to asassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un. Two weeks ago, a spokesperson described the film as a "blatant act of terrorism and war" to a state news agency. Now the country has taken the issue to the United Nations, with its UN ambassador Ja Song Nam writing a letter of complaint to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon." Read full article and watch The Interview's trailer in Dazed Magazine. E.T.P. 3'

Raphaële Bezin is young French filmmaker from the Ecole supérieure d’arts de Paris-Cergy who made as final dissertation a movie called "Une estéthique de coups (des opérations d'artistes)" that analyses different practices of appropriation in cinema: from the Hollywood remake, to hidden quotations, supercuts, and even parodies. An interview with Raphaële (in French) and her movie are available in Les InrocksLab. E.T.P. 3' (article) and 1h 4' (movie).
