Patriotism ★★★★

Holy shitballs.. This is an extremely unrelenting and gut-wrenching (no pun intended) movie. Basically a glorification of seppuku, Mishima serves us patriotism-galore in this oddly beautiful movie. Thank you, Hunter, for making me aware of this. I think I will record a FB-exclusive episode for this one, seeing as it serves as an excellent companion-piece to HARAKIRI, and has a running time of only 29 min.
