I only saw it once.....
27 October 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was about twelve and it made a profound impression on me. Coming from a conservative Republican family, it got my wheels and gears turning so that when Watergate happened, I saw the parallels.

In reading the comments, I wondered about a couple of things. While I saw it more than 35 years ago, I remember that the resistance group was called the "Brotherhood of Man" or something similar. Also, the facility that they attacked was a power plant or vital production facility.

I'd be grateful for any insight on these questions, and I too wish it that were available on DVD or VHS.
