A good secondary resource is The Midnight Eye Guide to New Japanese Film, ( by Tom Mes and Jasper Sharp, which features a couple of pages on the film. 
The film was incidentally co-written with Leonard Schrader, elder brother of Paul (Taxi Driver).

Hi there
Perhaps you could help me with a research question.

I am looking for the production records (scripts, etc) of the Kazuhiko Hasegawa film The Man Who Stole the Sun (1979). I am also looking for reviews and secondary works about this film.
Could you please tell me where I might find these.
Many thanks for your time.
Thank you.
