ANGELIKA’S NOTE

The audacious murder of the brother of North Korea’s Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un in a crowded Malaysian airport sparked a worldwide media frenzy.

Rated 100% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, ASSASSINS goes beyond the headlines to question every angle of this case, from human trafficking to geo-political espionage to the secretive dynamics of the North Korean dynasty. "As you watch the movie, I promise that there are moments when your jaw will drop" (Variety).
