Synopsis:
Asubversively funny account of the making of a model fascist. Suzuki's stark, often comic vision of Japanese youth culture driven into a frenzy of brutal, militaristic violence by its own sexual frustration. Often cited as Suzuki's most personal (and political) film the film charts the progress of prim, repressed adolescent Kiroku as he fights his way from the schoolyards of the 1930's to political revolution in the 1950's. With a screenplay by Onibaba director Kaneto Shindo, and hyper-realistic fight sequences that are years ahead of their time, the film is a riotous, disturbing and incisive satire on fascism and machismo.
