In light of Donald Trump's ill-advised meeting with the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-um (whose human rights abuses are well documented), I decided to see Dennis Rodman's ill-advised journey to North Korea to meet the dictator in Dennis Rodman's Big Bang In PyongYang (2015). It is a fascinating film, but probably not for the reasons that one would expect, it is something akin to watching a car accident. Rodman comes under criticism for the visit after an American, Kenneth Bae is put under arrest. Some of the NBA players who signed up to join the exhibition game may lose sponsorship and they wait until the 11th hour to agree to play. Rodman under pressure falls off the wagon and is drunk the whole time. I'm not sure what would have happened if the business-like Charles Smith had not been there. He tries to be the spokesman during a CNN interview that is almost derailed by a drunk Rodman. Rodman is supposed to spend the weekend as special guest at Kim's private resort, but we learn that Rodman increases his drinking and the dictator never shows up, but like Trump Rodman declares it a victory and historic event. Historically infamous I suppose, Rodman showed up in Singapore during the Kim-Trump talks and cried about the historic event that he feels he helped mediate by having his exhibition game there in 2014-truth is often stranger than fiction. I7m certain Trump would give more credence to Rodman than any advisor, but I don't think Rodman can lay claim to this one.
