Chicago is the real star of the surprisingly powerful Captive State – For those of us who love the city, more than just the plot is familiar in this sly takedown of gentrification and authoritarianism. review by Dmitry Samarov
(Trivia) In one of the early shots of the Chicago skyline the Ryugyong Hotel was added. The Ryugyong Hotel isn’t in Chicago, it’s in Pyongyang, North Korea. It was started in 1987 and still sits unfinished. It’s in the Guinness Book of World Records as the tallest unused building.
