"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
Laurence Kardish, Museum of Modern Art
A long, slow movie about a fictional '60s radical group. They talk and talk and talk about making revolution. Then they talk some more. Every so often, violence breaks out for no particular reason. It's all pretty murky and hard to follow, but I think that's supposed to be the point, as if these wannabe revolutionaries are so caught up in their socialist fantasies that they've lost track of the real world. I found it fairly mesmerizing in its gritty realism, but I have a feeling a lot of people wouldn't be able to sit through it.
