2009: Lost Memories is Racist Anti-Japanese Terrorist Propaganda.
While stylish, it’s also sickening. The protagonist, the hero, becomes a murderer whose objective is starting a war between Japan and the United States. It plays like the worst of Arab nationalism — angry, backward-looking, unconcerned about the lives of others, petty.
It is a rare movie that makes you want to root for the Empire of Japan. The sickening nationalism of 2009 makes Lost Memories just such a movie.
