At the dawn of the millennium, the nation collapsed. At 15% unemployment, 10 million were out of work. 800,000 students boycotted school. The adults lost confidence, and, fearing the youth, eventually passed the Millennium Educational Reform Act... A cult classic par excellence and a late career smash for director Fukasaku. A savage, blood-drenched satire of ultra-competitive scholastics, and a blackly funny delight.
