Film curator Francisco Lo says critics at the time called the film a leftist paranoid nightmare. Audiences stayed away in droves. Its an underrated movie, says Lo. It wasnt banned, it was certainly marginalized. Shot in a mockumentary style, Park shows the characters talking politics to the camera as well as acting. Its not just propaganda, says Lo. Its sophisticated, while also showing lots of raw emotion. Lo says that while the film is now 40 years old, it continues to be relevant in a post-9/11 world. 8:30 p.m. Domy Books, 1709 Westheimer.
