Since some folks seem to want to apply litmus tests to "radical"
film, here's a selection (all on Ubuweb, so you can check them out
for yourself if you haven't seen them) to ponder or argue about:

Dziga Vertov
Three Songs About Lenin 1934

Guy Debord
Society of the Spectacle 1973

Harun Farocki
Inextinguishable Fire 1969

Robert Kramer
Ice, 1969

Dziga Vertov Group
Wind from the East (1970)

Werner Schroeter
Der Tod der Maria Malibran 1972

Jean Rouch
Les Maitres fous 1955

Jean Genet
Un Chant d’amour 1950

Carolee Schneeman
Fuses, 1965

Henry Hills
Money, 1985

Fernand Leger and Dudley Murphy
Ballet méchanique 1924

Groupe Medvedkine
Nouvelle Societe no. 7 1969

Jean-Luc Godard and Anne-Marie Miéville
France/tour/détour/deux/enfants, color, sound

arguably they all fit the radical form and radical content criteria
