Sight and Sound - 09/01/2008
"PATRIOTISM marked an intensification of Mishima's Japanese nationalism....A desire for the simple purity of a Noh play is seen throughout the film."

Product Description:

Yukio Mishima's only film tells the story of a naval officer's ritual suicide--eerily presaging the novelist's own death by seppuku years later. If such parallels weren't enough, the officer is played by Mishima himself. As with his fiction and plays, sex, death, and honor play an important role in this short film full of dazzling images. While all prints of PATRIOTISM were initially destroyed, the negative was saved, allowing audiences to once again glimpse Mishima's arresting vision.
