    "I made an A-bomb and I don't know what I want."

  2. Mugino's rating of the film The Man Who Stole the Sun

    Schrader's original title, "The Kid Who Robbed Japan", is a bit more revealing. Filmed in guerrilla style in front of the Imperial Palace and around the National Diet Building, Hasegawa's creation represents the subversion of youth as much as it mocks it. Kenji Sawada, better known at the time as the androgynous Bowie-like "Julie", is an apt casting choice for the ambivalent and directionless Makoto Kido.
