Just finished watching the Japanese film, Battle Royale. In the not-to-distant future, a fascist, dystopian Japanese government--it's hinted that the government is propped up and prodded by the Americans--sends teenagers to a remote island, where the kids have to fight to the death. the last one left alive can go home.

Takami Kōshun wrote the original novel, and the film does stray from the original source material. But, the movie is great, nonetheless. You watch high friends and lovers turn on one another, cliques breakdown into vicious infighting . . . I say find this movie and watch it. There's a sequel, which I bought as well. Survivors of the first film for a "terrorist" cell and declare war on the government and adults. In fact, opening scenes of the movie have 9/11-style attacks on Tokyo buildings on Christmas Day, killing some 8,000 people.

And Tokyo thought Gojira was bad . . . .

It's subversive as hell--and I love it.
