THE REVOLUTIONARY 1970
U.S. film. Letterbox. A radical college student feels that he’s been betrayed by the college organization to which he belongs, and thinks more violent actions must be taken in order to change “the establishment” system. The Revolutionary is one of several early 1970s films about students protesting the Vietnam War, including The Strawberry Statement and R.P.M.

A radical student called "A" is disillusioned with his university’s leftist group because of its policy of cooperation with the establishment. He abandons it to join a more militant group led by a radical factory worker. Working hard to provoke a general strike, he is forced to go into hiding when the government enforces a crackdown on radical activities.

He is drafted into the army, but when he finds that he’ll be sent to put down a workers' strike, he deserts and finds shelter with Helen, a woman whom he had met earlier. Soon A becomes disgruntled with the radical group, which has become very careful due to increased government pressure, so he decides to join a fanatical far-left activist group planning to assassinate a judge.

A's part in this conspiracy is to detonate a second bomb in case a first bomb does not explode. After the judge has sentenced several convicted strikers, the first bomb malfunctions, and A is left holding the second bomb and facing the judge. Jon Voight, Seymour Cassel, Robert Duvall, Collin Wilcox Paxton, Jennifer Salt, Elliott Sullivan, Alexandra Berlin, Warren Stanhope, Peter Carlisle, John Orchard.
