Another Attack: Popular Japanese film director Juzo Itami, attacked last year by gangsters who were outraged at his anti-gangster film "Mimbo no Onna (Mob-Fighting Woman)," has come under attack once again for the work. During a showing of Itami's latest film, "Daibyonin (Very Sick Patient)," a young man who police said belonged to a small rightist organization that had opposed the distribution of "Mimbo no Onna," slashed a movie screen in Tokyo while 400 filmgoers watched. The man told investigators he cut the 29-foot slash across the screen to protest the desecration of the Japanese flag in the anti-gangster film.
