Death by Hanging is great!

Honestly, most of the Japanese New Wave stuff was made by super-lefty directors, and there's a lot of stuff worth watching there if you can stomach the style. Even when they aren't overtly political, a lot of the films deal with themes that are really important in leftist thought; power, class, desire, etc...
