another aum-like cult's mind control/mass suicide film is kore-eda's 
"DISTANCE" (2001).  

tezuka makoto's "hakuchi" (1999) takes up those two themes as well.  asano 
tadanobu's character is shown repeatedly trying to hang himself in it while 
living in this bizarre neo-WW2 japan that is controlled by a monolithic 
television station and its star idol.

not really an example of mind-control, but there's high school suicide in 
toyota toshiaki's "aoi haru" (2001).  sorry i don't know the english titles 
for these films.
