Kaigenrei | Chicago Reader


Also known as Martial Law and Coup d'etat, this black-and-white feature is about national socialist theoretician Ikki Kita (Rentaro Mikuni), who was charged with an assassination plot and executed in 1936. Film historian Noel Burch has called this “radically disjunctive” film “a complex provocation” and “an ideological catalyst,” pointing to the film's theatrical elements and its uses of psychoanalysis and fantasy. According to Burch the film presupposes some familiarity with the historical facts behind the story. 1973, 110 min.
