there is also a fairly new (2002) French tv documentary by Micha?l Prazan called Japon les ann?es rouges produced by ARTE. 
For me, knowing very little about the events, it was, inspite of being only 52minutes, very interesting. 
It covers the student movements in sixties and the formation of the Japenese Red Army fractions as well as mentioning Wakamatsu's and Adachi's involvement. It is mostly made up of recent interviews with some of the people more or less involved and archive material on the actual events, some of it quite stunning. 
I'm not sure whether it is available anyware on a retail basis but it is distributed internationally by Kuiv Productions in Paris. 
all the best
