The rise of the leftist paramilitary group in Japan known as United Red Army provides the spine of this intense docudrama. Flush with extraordinary detail and broad sweep, the film (whose director, Kôji Wakamatsu, is an ex-member) depicts the strenuous training undertaken by recruits and the evolution of fascist ideas in the communist organization. Maki Sakai, Akie Namiki star; Sonic Youth's Jim O'Rourke provides the musical score. 190 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: Japanese; Subtitles: English. In Japanese with English subtitles.
