'The Emperor's Naked Army Marches On'

Why: Originally conceived by Shohei Imamura (The Eel, Warm Water Under a Red Bridge), Kazuo Hara's first film is a documentary about an elderly World War II veteran named Kenzo Okuzaki. It touches on cannibalistic war crimes and lunatic political activism and distinctly unromantic matchmaking. Let us now praise those bygone days when all it took to protest a form of government was distributing pornographic pictures of one's emperor. (Grand Illusion, 1403 NE 50th St, 523-3935. 6:30 and 8:45 pm, $5—$7.50.)
