1999年9月,森達也導演再度執起攝影機,以日本奧姆真理教為題材繼續進行拍攝。此時,奧姆真理教已被驅散到日本各地,在許多據點默默地繼續運作。《A2》呈現了一個由信徒、社區居民、警察、右派愛國主義者、媒體等共同營造出來的奇異居所。儘管大眾媒體持續將奧姆真理教妖魔化,信徒幾乎等同於人民公敵,然而森達也這部作品裏所呈現的世界,和一般日本人過度簡化的認知有很大的差異。

Director: Tatsuya Mori

By the time Mori made this follow-up to A, it was not only the name of the group that had changed from Aum to Aleph-in the view of the director, Japanese society had begun to slowly deteriorate and decay, with all sense of religion completely lost. Mori at first reluctant to delve into the realms of sequels which shed notoriously poor results, was persuaded otherwise when he saw the chance to focus on a completely different aspects of the group. The result is a balanced portrait of a group of people who have always been treated with bias in the popular press.
