I thought Men Behind the Sun was the better movie.

Still, the documentary side offered a lot of food for thought.

The ending especially brings into focus the interest of all countries in the test results the Japanese brought out of Manchuria just as the world hungered for the notes and results of Nazi Doctors and researchers from the death camps of eastern Europe.

In it’s gory, lurid, hatchet-in-hand approach, this film reminds us, we are all killers. We can all ignore the humanity of “others” and commit the most atrocious acts on them in the name of our country and god, but mostly, we do it because it is what humans do best, given the excuse. Kill.

I was more interested in the effects of the experiments….not so much of the drama….well done even though they didn’t have so much to go on.

Does anyone have a concrete understanding why they removed her skin before the roach crawled out? Thanks.

Decent Movie. Had some serious flaws but had some insights too.
