WR: Mysteries of the Organism ★★★ 1971

Makavejev's breakthrough film, a surreal, essayist exploration of the conflict/union between sexuality and politics—namely, Wilheim Reich and Stalin. A raunchy, bitterly satiric non-narrative that established the rule-breaking Yugoslav internationally. In Serbian with English subtitles. 84m/C VHS, DVD . Milena Dravic, Jagoda Kaloper, Tuli Kupferberg, Jackie Curtis; D: Dusan Makavejev; W: Dusan Makavejev.
