REVIEWS

"There's no doubt that it stands alone as a sympathetic, frequently brilliant ideological thriller. Kramer's film occupies intriguingly shifting territory between documentary and science fiction. The result is a unique testament to the political consciousness of a decade. Kramer constantly astonishes with his ability to draw performances and find images that fix this particular consciousness with unnerving precision. It is beautifully shot in black-and-white."

“Surprisingly honest view of the life style of young American terrorists.”
– Pauline Kael
