The Fall of Fujimori is a character and interview-driven documentary that explores the volatile events that define Alberto Fujimori's decade-long reign of Peru: his meteoric rise from the son of poor Japanese immigrants to the presidency; his fateful relationship with the shadowy and Machiavellian Vladimiro Montesinos; his self-coup that dissolved overnight both Congress and the Judiciary; and the bloody and dramatic Japanese Embassy hostage crisis.

This is a 2006 documentary produced and directed by Ellen Perry.
Determined to wipe out factious rebels, Fujimori took extreme measures such as dissolving congress, replacing judicial process with military tribunals, subverting the press and permitting death squads.
Although these Draconian methods were largely effective, the power structure he built became an authoritarian machine that collapsed under the weight of its own corruption, leading Fujimori to flee to Japan in 2000.
Although he seems to have done a good job in dealing with terrorism, it appears cowardly for him to flee to Japan.
He should return to Peru to face his people if he really loves his own country.
