"An underground revolutionary group struggles against internal strife to stage urban guerilla attacks against a fictionalized fascist regime in the United States. Interspersed throughout the narrative are rhetorical sequences that explain the philosophy of radical action and restrain the melodrama inherent in the thriller genre." Written by

When I saw this I couldn't believe it was allowed to be on the screen.
I saw this film in Europe after I had been in France about 6 months and was just getting solid about the incredibly powerful control of the media in the US. Viet Nam propaganda was in full swing, and yet, here was this film! I never knew if it had actually been shown in the US until I saw the mention on this site, so I suppose that it was shown here. (The USA)
Of course this film isn't for everyone, but so few real ideas are. One could imagine that this is a blueprint for regaining control of the media and power etc. and thereby the minds of the people of this country. But heck, it's probably not important. Nope, it's OK in fact. As long as we're free to get any job they will let us have and we can go to any church we wish...hey, why complain. Some day, some Master's Degree in Sociology will write about this movie and tell you all about it, so you won't have to think too much on your own. It would have been bad for you anyway.
B.F. Skinner was right. I haven't found a way to buy a copy yet, either.
