| The Truth Can Hurt
Despite its gruesome reality, "The Emperor's Naked Army Marches On" serves as a strong wake up call to me, and I'm sure the same goes for many others. Through some of the inhumane moments, we are shown the truth which not everyone wants to look directly in the eyes, especially if showing us the truth sometimes means lying to us as well.

So in the end, this film stands as an excellent model for showing us how things are, not the formalistic view of how we wish them to be - we should not suppress the truth! And in addition, I find Kazuo Hara and Kenzo Okuzaki's dedication to exploit the truth behind their film, very inspiring (but once again, "despite" their gruesome approach...).
