A confoundingly mercurial figure, Fujimori is a fascinating subject. But in her focus on the man, Perry fails to paint a broader picture of a racially diverse and extremely complex country marked by sharp class and socioeconomic contrasts.

The film is a must-see for Perry's one-on-one chats with her subject.

It never loses sight of the grim reality behind Fujimori's eccentricities, or the thousands of people arrested, kidnapped, raped, tortured, executed or, simply, 'disappeared.'

The Fall of Fujimori couldn't happen along at a more pregnant moment for America, as we agonize over how far we are willing to let our own leaders fudge the rules to stamp out terrorists.

Her film remains an intriguing portrait, even if its acceptance of Fujimori's shrugging demeanor and blame- storming serve to detour our concern from its proper place.

If you're feeling dismayed about the state of American politics, here's a thought to cheer you up: at least you don't live in Peru.

Covers much of the same terrain as Pamela Yates's State of Fear but with considerably less insight.
