A paranoid President decides the only way to deal with rebellious youth is have them arrested and put in concentration camps. HAIL doesn't quite hit its target as effectively as it could have, but it's still a nifty little satire. There's some nice reflections on the turmoil the country
went through in the late 1960s, though things do get a bit repetitive. The different levels of satire and parody are nicely handled by the director, and Resin is terrific as the sinister President-cum-dictator. An interesting historical note: HAIL was viewed at the Cannes Film Festival a little
more than three weeks before the Watergate break-in.
