The ugly face of fascism
3 September 2002 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

De Leon uses the fraternity as a symbol of fascism. The hazing rituals, demoralization, torture and militarism all cover the imposition of the mighty few against individual rights of the hapless ones. The violent rumble at the end captures the fanaticism of the subjects working for the goal of attaining the ultimate high - power. Strong, very powerful, a work of great political understanding from Mike de Leon.
